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.

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 Cin- cinnati. 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 sub- mitted 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 excel- lence regardless of category. Also new this year were awards for Urban Edge Excellence in Sustainable Design and Community Design. In addition, one project received the jurors’ commendation. Review of the design submittals took place over two days, with the winners being selected and announced live during ceremonies at the AT&T Victory Plaza. Each of the submittals was displayed across the large video board at the end of the plaza during the first hour of the evening, with the winners being displayed as the awards were being presented. This year’s event captured the excitement of the live announcements.
