Awards celebrate unsung heroes of architecture 

As a part of their 2009 “Architecture Week” celebration, AIA Las Vegas presented the second annual Unbuilt Las Vegas Awards. This year’s contributors included students, interns, associates, architects, AIA Las Vegas members and non-members alike. Submissions included a total of 60 projects featuring architectural design work that to date remains unbuilt.

Sean Coulter, AIA - President of AIA Las Vegas stated: “Unbuilt Las Vegas is a very special exhibit. Some may question why we have an ‘unbuilt’ awards program and the answer is because it stimulates the imagination, expands the horizon of what is possible and generates new thinking. These projects are theoretical, academic and unbuilt projects that are quality design...but for various reasons may or may never become reality."

The jury for this year’s Unbuilt Awards included Ric Licata, National Director for the Western Mountain Region, nationally recognized sculptors Neil Shigley and Jon Koehler; and Steve Van Gorp, Deputy Director of Business Development for the City of Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency.

Twelve projects were recognized as being award worthy and they include:
