Since 1983, the American Institute of Architects California Council (AIACC) has celebrated outstanding architecture through the AIACC Design Awards program. The AIACC continues this tradition by inviting you to submit your firm’s recent work for the 2015 program. These Awards commend the spirit of innovation and creativity found among those visionaries who take chances and make design achievement a reality. This year, we are adding a video component to the program—all recipients will be featured as part of a video production! The AIACC wants to elucidate your work than through video documentation to further promote the value of design—of your design. These videos will be available to your firm for marketing purposes, for they will help promote your organization and project(s), and help create awareness amongst consumers.


Please note all submittals to the AIACC Awards Program must include metrics for resource-efficiency and resilience. The new Performance Data worksheet directly supports the policy of “Principles for Advocating Energy, Water, and Resource-Efficient Design.” The Performance Data Worksheet is required, as we believe this is an important tool to evaluate design success.


On many levels and through many mediums, the AIACC is showing the world how intelligent design shapes the human experience; the Design Awards Program is a critical component in telling that story.
