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.

Re: Rainwater Court - Hats off to Greg Elsner and Architecture for Humanity who finalized the design of this incredibly unique structure. The ground work that this Design Fellow put in day after day while in Kenya made this project what it is today. This is a well-deserved award and I congratulate those who put for effort to make this happen.
