2017 Celebration of Architecture Gala

Saturday, March 18, 2017 | FedEx Event Center at Shelby Farms

Thank you for joining us for the 2017 AIA Memphis Honors+Awards Gala at the new FedEx Event Center designed by Marlon Blackwell Architects in the beautiful surroundings of Shelby Farms Park. What an evening! AIA Memphis honored individuals and firms for their outstanding contributions to the community through service, advocacy, education and design. 

Guests enjoyed a stunning sunset, cocktail reception, and silent auction of original work by architecture students from the Department of Architecture at the University of Memphis. The evening culminated in the presentation of the AIA Memphis Honors+Awards.

Congratulations to President's Award recipients Mary Haizlip, AIA, Haizlip Studio and Ben Avant, Clear Advantage Lighting; newly elevated AIA Fellow Reb Haizlip, FAIA, Haizlip Studio; Francis Gassner Award recipient James F. Williamson, FAIA; and AIA Memphis Design Award winning firms Allen & Hoshall, archimania, Bounds and Gillespie Architects, and Looney Ricks Kiss.

Also recognized were AIA Memphis members for recent licensure including: John Halford, AIA, archimania; Jason Weeks, AIA, Looney Ricks Kiss; Andrew Carimi, AIA; and Jerry Coleman, AIA.

Congratulations to this year's winners--we look forward to another great event next year as we celebrate the 65th anniversary of AIA Memphis!
