AIA Dallas Unbuilt Design Awards to move to Spring
An update about the Unbuilt Design Awards on the AIA Dallas calendar
For the past three years, AIA Dallas has held the Unbuilt Design Awards annually in September, and the Built Awards in October. The awards had been held together in the past, but were separated to give the awards ceremonies their own prominence and attention as individual events.
In order to further elevate the strategic goal of the AIA Dallas Design Awards, to “Communicate the Value of Architects & Design,” the Unbuilt Awards will be given a more prominent position in the annual AIA Dallas calendar of events, and will be moved from the fall of 2014 to spring of 2015.
In addition to the calendar change, the Design Awards Committee is revamping the Unbuilt Awards announcement event to make it even more engaging and influential than it has been in the past. It is a very different type of event than the Built Awards; one that recognizes theory, dialogue, and the potential of architecture…even if the ideas have not yet been fully realized.
We look forward to sending out the Unbuilt Awards Call for Entries next Spring. In the meantime, our Built Awards are just around the corner…look for the Call for Entries for the Built Awards coming out this month!
