Every other year, AIA Idaho celebrates the best buildings and spaces—and the people behind them—with some of the most prestigious awards in the industry. Last fall, the American Institute of Architects Idaho announced the winners of the 2018 Design Awards at a ceremony held at the Inn at 500 Capitol downtown Boise. The program recognized outstanding achievements in architecture and design of Idaho individuals and organizations. The jury selected projects that demonstrated exceptional design and superior work of architecture.
The AIA Idaho Honor Award is the highest award given. In recognition of the professional achievement and execution of the design program, outstanding excellence manifested by the architect, and the cooperation
shown by the client and design team, in demanding and recognizing exemplary architectural standards in creation of the built environment.
The AIA Sustainability Award strives to remain flexible and encompass many facets of sustainability that allows for change over time and through a wide range of design projects. Emphasis is placed on quantifiable results in overall energy efficiency.
The 1619 Phillippi Passive House / Net-Positive Offices, Boise, Idaho designed by Scott Yribar of VY Architecture received the Honor and Sustainability Awards.
