WMAIA 2018 Design Awards
The WMAIA 2018 Design Awards program was held in conjunction with the Western Massachusetts Section of the Boston Society of Landscape Architects, and was sponsored by Pella Products and Keiter Builders.
The Awards were juried by AIA Maine.
The competition was open to any building type or landscape anywhere in the world completed at any time in the last ten years, by any architect or landscape architect whose principal office is currently located in Western Massachusetts (Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties), or who is a member of WMAIA.
The sole criterion of the program is design excellence.
The WMAIA received 23 entries. One Honor Award – the highest award – was presented; 2 Merit Awards were given, and 4 Citation Awards were presented.
All the submitted projects for 2018 are displayed below, and can be sorted.
Every two years the WMAIA awards an honorary membership to a person who otherwise would not be eligible for membership, but who has made significant contributions to architecture, design and/or environmental causes in Western Massachusetts.
This year, honorary memberships were presented to Jonathan Lash, former President of Hampshire College, for a career devoted to environmental and climate advocacy and for supporting green building initiatives in Western Massachusetts; and Julianna Waggoner, Principal of graphic design and marketing firm MicaBlue Creative, for her long-term engagement with and service to the architectural community in Western Massachusetts.
