NMAF announces 1st Annual Awards Program

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-3-30-58-pmTo mark the Foundation’s 30th anniversary, we are pleased to announce an Annual NMAF Awards Program honoring architecture and community. Nominations are open and we invite NMAF members and interested parties to suggest projects and/or people to be considered for recognition.

Nominations will be considered by a panel of AIA Fellows that we will entrust to select the best candidates in each category. Awards will be announced at NMAF’s Annual Membership Meeting in May.

3 categories for recognition: 

  1. Important historic buildings or sites that have had a lasting effect upon bringing together our community.
    We are seeking projects that have brought a community together in a lasting way. Possibilities for consideration might include historic churches, public spaces, town squares, theaters, or libraries.
  2. Newer buildings or sites completed within the last 50 years that have made our community stronger.
    We are interested in learning about projects that have been planned and designed to draw the community. Possibilities for consideration might include a community center, a public library, museum, or park.
  3. Devoted individuals or groups who have made a significant effort in spreading public understanding and appreciation of architecture in their community.
    This category is for individuals or groups who are devoted to maintaining and preserving a community’s architectural traditions.
NMAF Member, John Briscoe is coordinating this program. Please submit nominations by Friday, March 31 to briscoe@msn.com with a maximum two-page description and at least three photos.
