Small Project Awards Exhibit & LARGE PARTY 2018 Sponsorship Opportunities

Celebrate small projects in a big way at AIA Chicago’s annual Small Projects Awards & Exhibit. AIA Chicago's annual Small Firm/Small Projects Awards program recognizes high-quality work from Chicago architectural firms and exceptional local projects. All firms in the competition have fewer than nine licensed architects and architectural interns. Presented by the AIA Chicago Small Practitioners Group, the goal of this award program is to raise public awareness of the value architects bring to small projects and to promote small practitioners as a resource for design excellence.
