This year our Design Awards will be held at Case Western Reserve University's Peter B. Lewis Building designed by Frank Gehry.  We hope you will join us on Friday evening, November 16th in celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of this landmark building.

Our jury co-chairs, Aaron Betsky, Director of the Cincinnati Art Museum / contributing editor of Architect magazine and William Williams, Director of the School of Architecture and Interior Design at the University of Cincinnati will be joined by architecture critic Steve Litt of The Plain Dealer, and Fred Collopy of the Weatherhead School of Management, in an informal discussion panel.  The 4:00pm kickoff to the event includes a private screening of Extreme Visions, a new short documentary film by Tom Ball about Peter B. Lewis and Frank Gehry.  Of course, there also will be great food, drink and conversation throughout the evening until the after party ends at 11:00pm.

Please help us celebrate the outstanding achievements of Northeast Ohio designers while enjoying the company of colleagues and friends over an evening of unlimited spirits, excellent cuisine, dancing, and more.


Complimentary valet parking will be available at the Peter B. Lewis Building on the evening of the event. Attendees choosing to use the valet service, will need to walk to the Cleveland Museum of Art if they are attending the Extreme Visions private screening.
