The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) has selected five educational and cultural facilities for this year’s CAE Educational Facility Design Awards.

The five winning facilities are the Northridge Student Recreation Center at the California State University (designed by California LPA, Incorporated), Sandy High School in Oregon (designed by IBI Group Architects), The Jobie L. Martin Classroom Building in Jackson, Mississippi (designed by Duvall Decker Architects), the Mesa Community College Health Wellness Building in Arizona (designed by SmithGroupJJR) and Cranbrooke Kingswood Girls’ Middle School in Michigan (designed by Lake|Flato Architects).
