2022 Architectural Education Award Winners

ACSA is pleased to announce the 2022 Architectural Education Award Winners. Each year, ACSA honors architectural educators for exemplary work in areas such as building design, community collaborations, scholarship, and service. Award winners inspire and challenge students, contribute to the profession’s knowledge base, and extend their work beyond the borders of academy into practice and the public sector.

Read about all the winners below and in the PRESS RELEASE. Be sure to join us at the virtual ACSA 110th Annual Meeting, May 18-20, 2022. Additionally, we are planning a small ticketed in-person event in Los Angeles to be held on March 18 & 19, 2022 to celebrate the winners.
