The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) is pleased to announce the 2002 I.D.E.A.S. (Innovative Design and Excellence in Architecture with Steel) Award winners. The I.D.E.A.S. Awards recognize those designs where structural steel forms a prominent architectural feature if a building. There are four project size categories ranging from less than $10 million to more than $100 million. Each national award winner received an award check for $2000.

Buildings must be designed by architects in the U.S. and be completed on or after January 1, 1998. They can be of any size or type. A single jury comprised of three prominent architects selected by AISC judge the submittals. The criteria includes creative use of exposed structural steel, overall aesthetic and visual impact, design functionality, technical advancement in the use of structural steel and creativity and sensitivity in the combination of structural steel elements with other materials.

Entries for the 2003 awards are due by February 15th, 2002, and the awards will be presented in May, 2002 at the AIA national convention in Charlotte, NC. In addition, all winners will be featured in AISC's July issue of Modern Steel Construction magazine.
