From David Snippen, Assoc. AIA:
"A bit of short notice, but it would be great to have the Chapter membership included in Berkeley Design Advocates' Seventh Award Program this year. The awards ceremony will be held on December 7, at the Berkeley Art Center in Live Oak Park.
The rules for eligibility are very simple: all candidate projects must be located in Berkeley, and must have been completed ( issued a certificate of occupancy ) within the period from December 2004 through November 2006. Projects may be submitted by the design architect, or may be recommended by anyone in the community. There will be categories for residential work, commercial and institutional projects, schools and public projects, and, depending upon the number and range of submissions, may include local planning policies and programs.
Submissions should include a brief statement to describe the project, the address of the site, names of the owner, design architect, and design team, as appropriate, AND a digital photo or three. All this should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to Phillip Henry, AIA, at email@example.com as soon as possible. It is not necessary to submit presentation boards, or massive materials for the jury's consideration.
The cut-off date for submissions is 20 October (although we might extend the date for a couple of days longer).
As we have done before, these awards are for excellence in architectural design, technology and creativity, to be judged by a panel of peers in Berkeley.
These events are a lot of fun, and are appreciated by the recipients of awards as an acknowledgement of excellence by other design professionals."
