Chicago architects win big awards for small projects

Close to 1,000 architects, contractors and manufacturers filled the spacious Architectural Artifacts gallery in Chicago in May 2016 for the AIA Chicago’s annual Small Project Awards night. Award-winning architects were recognized, and entries to the Tiny Homes Competition were on display at the event, which was sponsored by Petersen.

Projects entered in the small projects competition were hung on display boards throughout the space, where Chicago design and construction professionals browsed and admired them as they networked and shared ideas. Awards were given in several categories, including a new People’s Choice award, which was decided in real time during the event. The People’s Choice winner was the Ghana Library, which can be seen here.

“Architects continue to find creative and interesting ways to include our metal products in their projects, and these talented design professionals deserve the recognition they receive at this fantastic event,” says Petersen CEO Mike Petersen, based in Elk Grove Village, Ill. “We are always ready to support innovative architecture and design by celebrating it at events like this, especially when the event, and the architects, are in our Chicago backyard.”
