DLR Group Receives Multiple Design Awards from AIA Cleveland
We have been recognized with five design awards from the Cleveland Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Each year, AIA Cleveland recognizes excellence in design by inviting local firms to submit their best work to be reviewed by nationally renowned juries from all over the country.
The five projects recognized represent work in architecture and interior design, and include the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C.; the Cleveland Clinic Avon Inpatient Bedtower in Avon, Ohio; the Reinberger Chamber Hall Renovation in Cleveland, Ohio; and the Capitol Theatre in Flint, Michigan. 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.
“These AIA Cleveland Design Awards are the result of our firm’s multidisciplinary model of integrated design, with people collaborating across disciplines and studios,” states Senior Principal and Global Cultural+Performing Arts Leader Paul Westlake, FAIA. “We are thrilled to be recognized as a design leader in Cleveland, as well as across the country and the world.”
The AIA Cleveland Design Awards celebrate and recognize architectural and interior design excellence in Cleveland and northeast Ohio. Recipients were celebrated in an honors ceremony on Friday, November 2.
