AIA Maine is pleased to partner with University of Maine at Augusta's Architecture Program to showcase the American Institute of Architects – Maine’s 2016 AIA Maine Biennial Design Awards. The exhibition is traveling throughout the state and is currently showcased at UMA's Water Street Gallery.
A reception will be held on Friday, April 28 from 5-7pm and will be a part of Augusta Downtown Alliance’s Art Walk on the same evening.
Featuring over 60 projects from Maine’s local architectural community, the exhibit celebrates the best of Maine’s architecture and showcases the various ways in which architects design buildings that respond to Maine’s natural and built landscape.
The compilation of projects is a result of AIA Maine’s 35-year old Design Awards program. The program solicits projects from member architects for a juried review by a group of nationally prominent peers from outside of the state of Maine. This year’s New Haven-based jury was selected for their individual accomplishments and collective understanding of Maine’s climate and geography. The jury awarded 11 total projects and was impressed with the overall work presented
