The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has announced the recipients for the 2017 Small Project Awards, a program which recognizes architects of small projects and promotes excellence in small-project design.
Now in its fourteenth year, the program has selected 11 projects in three categories from all over the United States. The categories are architectural designs or objects completed for under $150,000; architectural designs or objects measuring up to 5,000 square feet; and small projects completed for under $1,500,000.
Take a look at the winners below, which range from a pavilion to micro cabins in Colorado to a transitional housing facility in Portland, then head to the AIA for full descriptions of the winning projects.
