AWARDS FOR ARCHITECTURE

The South African Institute of Architects has a three tier award system. Awards are conferred every two years. Buildings which are considered meritorious are submitted to the regional institutes for consideration and those chosen by the panel receive an Award of Commendation. The regional institutes then select from these to submit to SAIA for consideration of a National Award of Merit. From these the panel of judges can confer an Award of Excellence.

For more information and criteria on these awards visit the SAIA website.
