New Awards

TxA introduced two new awards in 2020. The Award for Equitable Practice in Architecture in Honor of John S. Chase Jr., FAIA, was established through TxA’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Taskforce. The award was created to recognize the efforts of those architects who have made significant, measurable strides in their practice, in the practice of others, or in the public awareness of equitable practice in architecture.

The new Historic Architecture Award recognizes a Texas building or group of buildings, completed more than 50 years ago, designed by an architect, and located on its original site, that continues to positively impact the area in which it resides, has inspired architects and architecture through the decades, and represents a landmark in the state. All TxA members and Texas AIA components are invited to submit nominations.

The Call for Nominations is Now Closed

The nomination deadline for 2020 Honor Awards was Wednesday, June 24.
