Award Programs

Small Project Awards


AIA Chicago's annual Small Firm/Small Projects Award program recognizes high quality work from small Chicago architectural firms and exceptional small local projects.

Presented by the AIA Chicago Small Practitioners Group, the goal of this award program is to raise public awareness of the value that architects bring to small projects and to promote small practitioners as a resource for design excellence. All firms in the competition have fewer than nine licensed architects and architectural interns.
