AIA Albuquerque Design Awards Program, this annual awards program encourages and recognizes distinguished architectural achievement by New Mexico architects. The Awards program is open to all registered architects who are active AIA architects and non-AIA architects. The program serves to increase public awareness of the outstanding services provided by architects as well as to emphasize the importance of the architect’s role in shaping the quality of the built environment through design excellence.
