ment. Notably, two awards went to infrastructure projects, two were educational buildings, two were commercial projects, and one was a cultural institution. Four awards – a third of the total – went to residential projects, each unique and exemplary. It is impossible to look at the list of winners and not recognize the achievement of Lake/Flato Architects and their associated firms in being awarded five of this year’s awards. As the jurors were narrowing their list of projects for consideration, several additional Lake/Flato projects were in contention. The projects were diverse enough in their scale, design, and material expression that it was never clear to the jurors that these were Lake/Flato projects at all. The one thing they all have in common is the considerable artistry of the solutions and their excellence of execution. Lake/Flato has established an enviable standard for all of us who practice in this state and we can all share in the pride of the legacy of their accomplishment. On behalf of the Design Committee, I would like to thank all of those architects and firms who submitted projects for consideration. The committee also thanks our friends at Blackson Brick, a stalwart supporter of the Texas Society of Architects. This annual program owes a considerable debt to Blackson Brick for its sponsorship of the Jury. To those whose projects won awards this year, congratulations. To those whose projects did not, please submit again next year—every jury is different. Indeed, several of the projects selected for awards this year had been submitted previously, but did not win. With the unique composition of each year’s jury, priorities and objectives change. Whether or not our work is recognized in this annual contest, it is important for all of us that we work toward a goal of creating projects of award-winning caliber in everything we do in our practices. Michael Malone, AIA, serves as the 2011 chair of the Texas Society of Architect’s Design Committee.
