Videos Highlight Diversity of State's Award-Winning Architecture
The 12 winners of 2011 Texas Architects Design Awards, featured in this video gallery, represent the diversity of our State's architectural profession and the increasing role that architects from Texas play in the globalized forum of design.
On May 20, Texas Architects Design Awards jurors -- David Salmela, FAIA, of Duluth, Minn.; Steve Dumez, FAIA, of New Orleans; and James Russell, FAIA, of New York -- met at the Society's headquarters in Austin. They spent nine hours reviewing 257 entries before selecting 12 projects for Design Awards. Several times the jury expressed difficulty in choosing the winners—a confirmation of the elevated level at which architecture is practiced in Texas.
The videos in the gallery above premiered at an awards ceremony on October 28 during the Texas Society of Architects 72nd Annual Convention in Dallas. Each project also appears in the September/October 2011 issue of Texas Architect.
