AIASF’s Design Awards program recognizes the achievements in architecture and design of Bay Area individuals and organizations. It celebrates architectural design as well as the work of allied professionals from afar who contribute to the framework of the local built environment. The program serves to inform the public of the breadth and value of the architectural practice.
The awards ceremony was the chapter’s first in-person event since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.
