19 projects win AIA Seattle awards for 2011


The American Institute of Architects Seattle chapter has given awards to 19 projects — from a correctional facility to a karaoke bar.

Seventeen of the projects in the 2011 AIA Seattle Honor Awards were located or envisioned in Washington and two were international.

There were 140 submittals. Four received an honor award, five received merit awards, five won commendations and three won citations.
