Review & Download the 2020 Design Pittsburgh Call for Submissions

Design Pittsburgh is a signature program of AIA Pittsburgh, celebrating excellence in architecture and design, and honoring those who create it. It is our opportunity as a community to publicly promote architects as critical resources and industry experts, and demonstrate the importance of great design in the Pittsburgh region. This program provides an opportunity for AIA Pittsburgh members, sponsors, partners, and the public to support and acknowledge the value of architecture and design in the places where they live, work, and play.


  • Project Presentation (pdf) requirements aligned with those for AIA PA Awards, to make it easier to participate in both programs.
  • New Submission site to eliminate errors, integrate with on-line voting, and make jurying process more efficient.
  • Integration of the Framework for Design Excellence Measures

Important Deadlines

Sunday, August 9, by 11:59 PM – Eligible submissions must be received by AIA Pittsburgh.
