Awards for Excellence in Design

Since 1983, the Public Design Commission has recognized outstanding public projects with its Annual Awards for Excellence in Design. The winning projects are selected from the hundreds of submissions reviewed by the Commission the previous year. The award ceremony is typically held in a recently completed building that embodies what we hope can be achieved by all public architecture: spaces that inspire us towards a better future.
