2016 AIA Louisiana Honor Awards for Architecture
New Orleans architectural firms dominated the prestigious American Institute of Architects Louisiana Chapter (AIA LA) Design Competition, winning all but two of the ten prizes given in the annual competition.

The awards were given during the annual AIA LA Design Conference Awards Banquet, held on September 10 in Lafayette. The firm of Eskew+Dumez+Ripple won the only two Honor Awards given - one for the Ace Hotel in New Orleans and the other for the Orpheum Theatre, also in New Orleans. The firm also won an Award of Merit for the JewelBox at Orbion, which is located in Moscow, Russia. The Ruston firm of Studio Brooks + Emory won an Award of Merit and the sought-after Members' Choice Award for the Larkin Gibbs Memorial Pavilion in Choudrant, LA.

Other New Orleans firms that won Awards of Merit include Nbbj/Blitch Knevel for the University Medical Center in New Orleans, SCNZ for Crescent Care, Waggonner & Ball Architects for the National Disaster Resilience Competition: City of New Orleans, studio WTA won for 704 Marigny, and Markdesign won for Gallier Hall: St. Charles Avenue façade renovation.
