The University of Florida School of Architecture swept all four 2023 American Institute of Architects Florida Chapter student awards, AIA Florida announced this month. The four will be honored at the end of this month at the organization’s annual convention and trade show, held July 26-30 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando.

“To have four of our master’s students sweep the AIA Florida student awards is a sign of the school’s excellence and a testament to their talents and design skills,” UF School of Architecture Director David Rifkind said. “There is no doubt in our mind this foursome will go on to reshape the world in profound ways and continue to earn the accolades of their peers. We are grateful that AIA Florida recognizes their work.”

The AIA Florida Design & Honor Awards program encourages excellence in architecture, elevates the public awareness of good design and recognizes those architects whose work enriches our communities and architecture at large.

Those wishing to congratulate the quartet of winners can do so at the UF School of Architecture Alumni Reception, to be held Friday, July 28, at the Grand View Terrace inside the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. To RSVP for the event, click here.
