The Small Project Practitioners Knowledge Community of the American Institute of Architects presents the tenth annual Small Project Award Program to recognize the work of small project practitioners and to promote excellence in small project design. This Award Program strives to raise public awareness of the value and design excellence that architects bring to all project types, including renovations and additions, no matter the limits of size and budget.
This year’s Small Project Award theme, RESOURCEFULNESS, intends to recognize projects that, through design, turn nothing into something, transform liabilities and constraints into opportunities, and do more with less.
Be Recognized for Your Outstanding Work!
The Small Project Practitioners Knowledge Community encourages submissions of projects in all building types: commercial, retail, industrial, educational, public and private, as well as residential.
In addition, projects may include fully completed new and renovations or elements of built projects.
We invite the submission of projects accessible to people of all abilities. New construction and renovations are equally welcome.
- A small project construction or architectural design element up to $150,000.
- A small project construction, up to $1,500,000.
- A small project construction or architectural design element under 5,000 square feet.
- Unbuilt architectural designs under 5,000 square feet.
Award winning projects will be recognized in AIA publications and electronic media, including the SPP Journal, website, and a forthcoming book commemorating the first 10 years of the Small Project Awards. Select residential award winning projects will be included in Fine Homebuilding magazine’s annual awards issue, HOUSES, and on www.finehomebuilding.com.
Projects will also be displayed at the 2014 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition. Information will be provided to Award Recipients regarding board layout.
