Dorothy Spence Citizen Architect Award

This award honors an AIA member who engages in their community with a design mentality, seeing their community the same way an architect sees a project: “it is all connected.” They break down silos, see how various community problems are interconnected and determine how a community leader can find a leverage point for solutions. This award recognizes contributions made outside of volunteer roles within AIA.
