2016 Built Design Awards Welcomes Aaron Seward, Editor of Texas Architect Magazine

The AIA Dallas Design Awards Committee is pleased to welcome Aaron Seward, Editor of Texas Architect Magazine, as moderator for the 2016 Built Design Awards.

Aaron Seward is editor of Texas Architect magazine. Born in Corpus Christi, he grew up in Houston, southeast Iowa, and Oregon. After high school, he attended college in Chicago at Columbia College of the Arts and then in New York City at the New School University, where he graduated with a bachelors degree in Literature, Writing and the Arts. Seward has spent the entirety of his professional career producing architectural publications, first as a book editor at Edizioni Press, and later at The Architect’s Newspaper, where he worked his way up from assistant editor to executive editor. His writing has appeared in numerous trade and consumer publications, including Architect, Architectural Lighting, Metal in Construction, Man of the World, and Popular Science. 

The 2016 Awards Announcement Celebration will be held on Thursday, October 6th at the Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff. As this year is the lead-up to the 50th year of AIA Dallas’ Design Awards program, it is fitting to have the awards ceremony in a historic building in a historic neighborhood that has been a vital and active part of Dallas for over 100 years. Join us for a celebration of the best built work put forth by Dallas architecture firms. The event will feature a discussion by our distinguished jury, (separate juror blog posts to follow) as they reflect on the entries and Dallas architecture in general.

This year’s program will feature a separate event the previous night held in partnership with the Young Professionals Network. Call to Order will feature our jurors in a more informal setting as they present their own work and engage in discussion with the audience. It will be held at the downtown offices of HKS, in their ground-level event space.

Please mark your calendars and join us for both of these events. See you there!
