New York Architects to honor design excellence in public buildings

Business Council member The American Institute of Architects New York State (AIANYS) will honor the winners of a new competition celebrating design and professional excellence in publicly funded buildings in New York State on Monday, April 28.

The Excelsior Awards provide a model for future state-funded building design and professional practice and advocacy.  Winning projects stimulate their surrounding neighborhoods and promote public safety and security, while the professional awards recognize leaders who fight for sustainable, high performing new buildings and for the preservation and appropriate reuse of buildings that contribute to the common good.

The American Institute of Architects New York State (AIANYS) speaks for the interests of all registered architects throughout New York. The organization’s goals are to elevate the professional standing of the architecture community, mobilize both AIANYS members and policymakers as advocates in support of the architectural profession, and educate the public at large about architecture’s power to transform and improve lives.

Founded in 1931, AIANYS has 7,100 members in 13 chapters statewide who are practicing architects, allied professionals, students, and public members interested in architecture and design. Its parent organization, the American Institute of Architects (AIA), is a nationwide, membership-based organization.
