The American Institute for Architecture has just announced its picks for this year’s Honor Awards, recognizing projects in architecture, interior design and urban design. 17 winners were chosen from more than 500 submitted for review by licensed architects and designers in the United States, although some of the winning projects are located around the world. The Honor Awards, now in their 69th year, were selected by a panel of architects and academics who judged on the basis of outstanding excellence and innovation.
