The Maryland State Component of the AIA (AIA Maryland) announced its 2014 Design Awards Program winners, recognizing both AIA members and students studying architecture. For the AIA members, 22 winners were selected from a total of 122 entries submitted by firms within the Maryland, Virginia and DC area. Three architecture students from Morgan State University received design awards, from a total of 45 submissions to AIA Maryland’s eighth annual University Student Design Awards competition.

The six judges, hailing from the Boston Society of Architects, included jury chair Sandra Baron, AIA, Dr. Robert Cowherd, Assoc. AIA, David Gamble, AIA, Mark Klopfer, AIA, Uma Ramanathan, AIA, and Heather Taylor, AIA. In regards to the student work, the judges felt the submissions were varied but all showed a consistent concern for sustainable ideas. At the professional level, the judges’ selections reflect an appreciation for buildings that strayed from Maryland building conventions.
