The American Institute of Architects Seattle chapter announced 13 winners of its 2019 Honor Awards for Washington Architecture at a ceremony Monday at Town Hall Seattle.

This is the 69th year of the program, which celebrates the design community’s achievements. There were 131 submissions.

Projects must be in Washington or by a firm based in the state. The categories are built, conceptual and research and innovations. The award levels are honor, energy in design, merit and honorable mention. Any category may be considered for any award, except energy in design, which is only for built projects.

The jury was Bryan C. Lee Jr., founder/design director of Colloqate Design, a nonprofit multidisciplinary design practice in New Orleans; Lisa Matthiessen, national sustainable design director of HGA of Santa Monica, California; and Jonathan Tate, principal of OJT, an architecture and urban design practice in New Orleans. The moderator was architect Elizabeth Golden, an assistant professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington.

A separate jury of emerging local architects picked its top project, called the Young Voices Selection, from among the submissions.
