Studio Awards

Recognizing unbuilt projects demonstrating innovation and excellence in design. 

Program Overview

The Texas Society of Architects Studio Awards recognize real or theoretical projects that demonstrate excellence in design. Real or theoretical projects that go beyond the boundaries of architecture to address current critical issues are encouraged. Submissions from students and practitioners are judged on equal footing, and projects of all types are considered together. The jury looks for entries that: embody strong ideas critical to contemporary practice; resolve these ideas thoroughly; and present them clearly.

2021 Call for Entries

For a project to be eligible, design must have been completed after January 1, 2016, and not under construction or built when entered into the awards program. Entries must be submitted by the individuals or firms located in Texas, or Texas-registered architects located outside of Texas. Faculty and students at any higher education design program within Texas are eligible to submit an entry.
