AIA Pittsburgh received 3,893 votes among 66 projects this year for our People’s Choice Awards. As part of the voting process, we asked people why they chose the project they chose, offering prompt questions like:
- Does the project inspire you?
- Would you enjoy spending time in that space?
- How does the project enhance or serve your community or surroundings?
This year’s winner received 600 votes, and nine other projects received over 100 votes. From this we compiled the Top 10 People’s Choice list, along with a small collection of the public’s comments. We see this as one way of fostering an important conversation between architects and the public that we will build on throughout the year with Architecture Week and other programing. Enjoy!
