Twenty-five Year Award

The American Institute of Architects’ Twenty-five Year Award celebrates buildings that excel under the test of time. Eligible projects must have been completed within the past 25 to 35 years by a licensed US architect, though the buildings may be located worldwide. Winning designs are still operating under the tenets of the original program, demonstrating continued viability in function and form, and contributing meaningfully to American life and architecture.  www.aia.org
