The American Institute of Architects has long been an organization that is committed to promoting design excellence. However, the awards and recognition pieces that it bestows on award winners and to significant contributions is anything but excellent in design. Recognizing the need for honoring achievements though a higher form of expression, a solution was designed that better aligns with the organization and the design professionals it represents.
Custom recognition awards were designed for outgoing leadership of the American Institute of Architects. Fabricated from 10 gauge hot rolled steel bent plate with the AIA logo laser cut out and laser engraved text.
Dimensions: 2"D x 4"W x 12"H
Available for purchase.
