Texas Architect Jan/Feb 2008: Design for Education
Texas Architect is the official publication of the Texas Society of Architects, each edition features recently completed projects and other editorial content largely written by AIA members in Texas. That collective participation was the basis of Texas Architect’s recognition by the national AIA with a 2010 Institute Honor for Collaborative Achievement.
AIA Dallas Celebrates Design Excellence The Dallas chapter of the American Institute of Architects announced the 2007 design award winners during its annual Design Awards Announcement and Celebration Party in the AT&T Victory Plaza on Sept. 19, 2007. This year’s jury for the built entries featured Joe Valerio, FAIA, of Valerio Dewalt Train in Chicago; Jon Pickard, AIA, of Chilton Pickard, in New Haven, Conn.; and John Senhauser, FAIA, of John Senhauser Architects in Cincinnati. Jurors for unbuilt entries were Frank Clementi, AIA, of Rios Clementi Hale Studios in Los Angeles; Diogo Burnay of CVDB Design in Lisbon, Portugal; and Johanna Grawunder of Johanna Grawunder Studios in San Francisco and Milan, Italy. From a record number of 162 projects submitted by Dallas-based architectural firms, 14 awards and six commendations were presented in three categories—unbuilt, built (small), and built (large). New to the awards this year was also a Best of Show to recognize overall excellence regardless of category.
