The AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Awards showcase the best of healthcare building design, healthcare planning and healthcare design-oriented research. The awards highlight the trends of healthcare facilities and the future direction of these facilities. Projects should exhibit conceptual strength that solve aesthetic, civic, urban, and social concerns as well as the requisite functional and sustainability concerns of a hospital. The AIA/AAH will recognize awarded projects and respective firms for their contribution to the healthcare environment at the AIA/ACHA Summer Leadership Summit and AIA National Convention. In addition, the projects will be featured in the AIA/AAH healthcare design awards publication.
