Five of 17 total submittals were recognized with awards. Three Honor Awards were bestowed to projects exemplifying overall design excellence and two Merit Awards were presented to projects featuring a particular detail of design worthy of recognition. Projects were not judged against each other but instead, rated on the architect’s performance considering the project’s scope and potential.
A committee comprised of emeritus members selected four Midwest, principal-level AIA architects from outside the state of South Dakota to judge the competition. To ensure unbiased judging and anonymity of participants, names and logos of architects, firms and consultants were not allowed in the submittal.
The Honor Award will be presented to TSP at the AIA South Dakota Convention on September 13th in Sioux Falls.
