Design Awards

The Texas Society of Architects Design Awards program recognizes outstanding architectural and urban design projects by architects practicing in Texas to promote public interest in design excellence. The annual competition focuses statewide attention on the quality of our built environment while highlighting the important role architects play in every community.
