The American Institute of Architects (AIA), a national organization founded in 1857, works to inspire its members and inform the public about the importance of architecture and design.
That work was manifest locally last weekend at the biennial AIA Design Awards, hosted by the Long Beach/South Bay branch. At this year’s ceremony, Wilson High School teacher Jeffrey Jackson received the “Community Design Advocate” award.
One Citation Award was given out to Rick D’Amato, FAIA at LPA Inc.
