AIA Nevada Design & Service Awards Archive

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Nevada holds a yearly design competition. The submittals for the competition are archived in the UNLV Architecture Studies Library. This archive is a collaborative project of the UNLV Architecture Studies Library (ASL), the AIA Las Vegas, and AIA Nevada.

These web pages are organized by year. On the annual charts you will find the project's name, building type, location, architectural firm, interior and landscape firm (if applicable), images, and whether the entry won an award and what type. An entry number is given to retrieve the archival information.

The complete archive is available for your use at the Architecture Studies Library, in the Paul B. Sogg Architecture Building, University of Nevada, Las Vegas. As much as possible has been placed on these web pages. Full documentation and high resolution images are only accessible in the library (ASL Special Collections).

A brief list of the type of visual information collected is also given in the annual chart. Entry forms include a project design description, type of construction, square footage, and list of consultants. Photos, drawings, and design sketches for a majority of the projects are on record. More in-depth information and slides of winning projects are also on file.

The comprehensive listing of AIA Nevada Design Award projects (1997- present) provides project name, firm name, and project number which links to additional materials on the UNLV Architecture Studies Library AIA Design Award web pages. In addition to material on the web, come to the Architecture Studies Library in the Sogg Architecture Building to see the project binder that provides text and often additional images, plans and elevations not displayed on the web page. Binders are arranged by year and project number. Please ask at the ASL service desk if you would like to review one of these unique resources.
