The AIA Louisiana Honor Awards program recognizes achievements for a broad range of architectural activity to elevate the general quality of architecture practice, establish a standard of excellence against which all architects can measure performance, and inform the public of the breadth and value of architecture practice. The awards were given at the AIA LA Design Conference Luncheon, held September 11 in Baton Rouge.
The firms of Trahan Architects and Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, both of New Orleans, won Honor Awards. Firms receiving an Award of Merit included Waggonner and Ball Architects, Lee Ledbetter & Associates, John T. Campo & Associates, Inc., and Gould Evans, all of New Orleans. The Members' Choice Award went to Holly and Smith Architects APAC, of Hammond.
