On Friday, 21 September 2018 at Charter Hall in Downtown Roanoke, the Design Awards + Education Event will bring together the greater AIA Blue Ridge community for a day of Continuing Education, capped off in the evening by the 2018 Design + Honor Awards ceremony recognizing design excellence from our region and beyond. The awards gala will feature guest speaker and 2018 design awards jury chair, David Jameson, FAIA.
David’s work has been recognized nationally and internationally with over 175 design awards and featured in over 200 design publications including Architectural Record, Abitare, Architecture, Architectural Digest, and Architectural Review. London based Wallpaper magazine recognized the firm in 2011 as one of four US based firms to follow in its Fabulous 40 issue and Architectural Digest named David as the youngest member of their AD100 roster, a listing of the top 100 architects and designer’s worldwide. In 2012 the Wall Street Journal included the studio in their folio of the ten best residential architects in the US.
