Yesterday the four additional awards we handed out to projects by local architects as part of the 2008 AIA Spokane Design Awards. While our polls were a simple popular vote contest, theirs have three distinct levels a project can be awarded: Citation (lowest); Merit (middle); Honor (highest). They can also choose not to award anything.
The results are below:
- Citation - Walla Walla Community College Health Science and Performing Arts Facility
- Merit - The Fox Theater - NAC Architecture
- Merit - The Chapel of the three companions - Integrus Architecture
- Merit - William A. Grant Water & Environmental Center - ALSC Architects
One interesting observation is that only one of final four from the People's Choice Award made their list (The Fox). Absent were the Kennedy Apartments, Ferris High School, and of course our winner - The Hospice House. Any thoughts on what conclusions can be drawn from this?
All of the boards are currently at the IDI @ WSU Spokane. They will be there till mid October at which point they will move to River Park Square for a month or so.
