About AIA Chicago's Designight 2021

We’re excited about a unique hybrid format for this year’s event – one that allows virtual viewing for everyone, while also providing the opportunity for small-venue satellite viewing parties at design showrooms across the city. As the premier architectural celebration of the year, AIA Chicago’s Designight 2021 recognizes our members through the Design Excellence Awards, the Lifetime Achievement Award, a recap of the Small Project Award winners announced earlier this year, and the inaugural Roberta Feldman Architecture for Social Justice Award. Geoffrey Baer will once again host this special event.
