2003 Exceptional Design Award
Nominations Are Due June 11
June 11 is the deadline to submit nominations for the 2003 Exceptional Design Awards Program, which recognizes exceptional architectural and site designs in Fairfax County.
The Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning, with assistance from the Fairfax County Architectural Review Board and the Planning Commission, designed the program to promote the county’s commitment to the pursuit of exceptional design in new developments and to encourage design professionals, builders and developers to enhance the county’s living and working environments.
Any architect, landscape architect, urban designer, land use planner, builder, developer or owner in the public or private sector may compete, provided the project is located in Fairfax County. The 2003 awards program is open to any project completed since Jan. 1, 1998. Anyone who resides in or has a place of business in Fairfax County may nominate a project. Awards for exceptional design will be considered for projects in (but not limited to) any of the following categories:
- Residential, single family detached
- Residential, townhouse
- Residential, multifamily
- Residential, planned community
- Commercial, retail
- Commercial, office
- Industrial, general
- Industrial, research and development office
- Adaptive reuse
- Mixed use development
- Energy efficiency in site and building design
- Affordable housing development
- Residential compatibility (Infill)
All entries must be submitted in an 8 1/2" x 11" binder. All materials submitted, including photographs and drawings, become the property of Fairfax County with rights to publish.
Honor, Merit and Honorable Mention Awards will be presented in as many cases as the jurors believe are merited. Nominations will be judged without regard to project authorship (names of nominees will not be disclosed to the judges). The Review Committee is composed of individuals from the Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, Potomac Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, Fairfax County History Commission, Northern Virginia Section of the American Planning Association, Engineers and Surveyors Institute and Fairfax County Architectural Review Board.
