In order to ensure the safety and health of our guests and staff, we have rescheduled the 2020 Honors and Awards Luncheon from April 17 to July 7.  The Luncheon will now be held virtually on Swapcard.

Cocktail Hour begins at 11:30am

The Award Ceremony begins at 12:30pm.

All attendees will receive the opportunity to start networking through the platform a few days prior to the event, upon registering through a private link and creating a profile.

Attendees will also be able to visit virtual booths for all the Design Awards projects, participate in small cocktail hour sessions, and “sit” at virtual tables during the ceremony to connect with peers throughout the event.

The luncheon honors the recipients of the AIA New York Design Awards. Several of AIA New York’s major awards—the Medal of Honor, Award of Merit, and Stephen A. Kliment Oculus Award—are also presented.

In addition to recognizing the award winners, the event serves as an important fundraiser for AIA New York and its ongoing mission to show that design matters.

We thank our honorees, Design Awards winners, sponsors, and attendees for their flexibility and understanding during this trying time. All questions should be directed to
