Starting Monday, the Washington, D.C., chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|DC) will showcase the best architectural designs of the year in a brand new exhibition at the District Architecture Center.

With over 40 projects featured, the 2017 Awards Show will profile the winners of three different competitions the AIA|DC has hosted in 2017, including the Unbuilt Washington Awards, Washingtonian Residential Design Awards, and Chapter Design Awards. For a full list of all of the winners, be sure to head to the AIA|DC website here.

The Unbuilt Washington Awards focused on theoretical and unbuilt commissioned projects, while the Washingtonian Residential Design Awards celebrated single-family, multi-family, and mixed-use residential projects. The Chapter Design Awards praised projects on a variety of categories, including design and wellbeing, sustainable design, universal design, and urban catalyst.

Along with this exhibition, there is another competition taking place. Visitors of the gallery will be able to participate in the People’s Choice Award by voting for their favorite project by December 31.

The closing party for the 2017 Awards Show is January 16 at 6:30 p.m.
