The 2009 CDA Winners are Part of a Nation Wide Trend

The AIA Washington Council held it's annual Civic Design Awards (CDA) on Thursday, May 14, 2009 at the ACT Theater in downtown Seattle. Eight awards were handed out to local firms and agencies. Each design was praised for its transparency which was especially noted as a grand contribution to schools, where vibrant design can be a tactile encouragement of children's growth.

This exciting focus on sustainable design of schools is leading a nation wide trend. According to a recent article in the New York Times, “school districts across the county are experimenting with new construction and renovations that save energy as well as improve educational facilities.”

The 2009 CDA winners continue to demonstrate how environmental awareness can still function beautifully for a community. For more information about the winners, and to see pictures of the winning projects please visit our website.
