The Wisconsin Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced 10 winners for its 2023 Design Awards program, including a new building at Marquette University and an expo center in Green Bay.
The institute received a total of 64 entries and all projects were designed by AIA Wisconsin architect members, officials said. Three projects were awarded the Honor Award for overall excellence and seven projects received Merit Awards for distinction in a focus area. Projects all over the world qualified as long as they were submitted by a Wisconsin architect member, officials added.
This year’s jury was comprised of Janette S. Blackburn, FAIA, of Shepley Bulfinch, Jennifer Park, AIA, of Park Fowler Plus and Todd Hoehn at WEISS/MANFREDI. Officials said this year’s framework for excellence asked questions about how projects considered social and environmental issues in their design.
Ten projects were recognized this year for AIA Wisconsin’s 2023 Design Awards. Here are the projects.
Resch Expo Center
With a sweeping roofline and grand entrance, the Resch Expo Center is adjacent to Lambeau Field and is connected to the existing Resch Center area. Kahler Slater designed the project with Kansas-City based Populous. Miron Construction was the general contractor for the 266,000-square foot building.
