The General Services Administration Wayne N. Aspinall Federal Building in Grand Junction, Colorado, received the architecture Honor Award, the highest award granted by AIA Cleveland. Four out of five of the recognized projects involved historic landmarks, a reflection of our strong commitment to the practice of historic preservation.  Two of the projects – the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery and the GSA Wayne N. Aspinall Federal Building – were previously recognized with AIA Council on the Environment (COTE) Top Ten awards in 2018 and 2014, respectively.
