AIA/HUD Award Winners for 2007 Named

May 22, 2007

By James Murdock

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) named three recipients of the 2007 AIA/HUD Secretary’s Housing and Community Design Awards. This awards program, created by the AIA Center for Communities by Design and the AIA Housing Committee in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, showcases the best housing in three categories.

This year’s winning projects are: El Carillo Housing Authority, designed by Cearnal Andrulaitis for the City of Santa Barbara Housing Authority, which was recognized for excellence in affordable housing; Salishan Neighborhood Revitalization, designed by Torti Gallas & Partners for the Tacoma Housing Authority, which was recognized for creating community connection; and High Point Community, designed by Mithun for the Seattle Housing Authority, which was honored community-informed design.

The AIA feted the designers of these projects, along with other 2007 award-winners, at its National Convention and Design Exposition in San Antonio earlier this month. Watch for full coverage on the AIA/HUD awards in Architectural Record’s July 2007 issue.
