    Little Spaces Win Big in AIA Small Project Awards

    Among the more than 200 submissions for the American Institute of Architects 2013 Small Projects Awards, 10 winners were recognized for their high quality of work and their excellence in small-project design. The winners were varied and included everything from a cemetery marker to a transit center. The voting process was blind, so jurors did not know which firms or designers were responsible for what projects.

    “As jurors, we felt challenged in the selection process, since there were projects that merited an award,” says Leonard Kady, AIA, jury chair and principal of Leonard Kady Architecture + Design. “But as jurors, we had to consider the best of the best.” The winners are:

    Category 1 (a small project construction, object, work of environmental art, or architectural design element up to $150,000)

    • Bemis Info Shop by Min|Day

    • Cemetery Marker by Kariouk Associates

    • Studio for a Composer by Johnsen Schmaling Architects

    Category 2 (a small project construction up to $1.5 million)

    • Nexus House by Johnsen Schmaling Architects

    • Pavilion at Cotillion Park by Mell Lawrence Architects

    • Webb Chapel Park Pavilion by Cooper Joseph Studio

    Category 3 (a small project construction, object, work of environmental art, or architectural design less than 5,000 square feet in size, designed and constructed by the architect)

    • 308 Mulberry by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA

    • Nevis Pool and Garden Pavilion by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA

    • Tahoe City Transit Center by WRNS Studio

    Category 4 (an unbuilt architectural design less than 5,000 square feet in size of which there’s no current intent to build, of all project types including purely theoretical, visionary projects, with or without a client)

    • Four Eyes House by Edward Ogosta Architecture
