“This comprehensive and even-handed overview of new American Architecture for 2017,” states Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Athenaeum, “allows you (as a viewer) to witness the enormous diversity in the American practice of architecture today. This year ‘s selection by the Greek jury was more interested in discussions concerning the problems of the environment, social context, technical and constructive solutions, the responsible use of energies, restoration and adaptive- reuse, and the sensitive use of materials and ecology.”

“Every one of the 79 winning buildings and urban designs illustrate why American architecture continues to be cutting-edge and globally influential.”

“The winning projects are each stunning and provocative new additions to their urban and rural locations-authentic connections to nature and to the very cultures in which they coexist. The selected projects have a positive psychological effect on the communities in which they are built and in which they serve-every detail looks handcrafted; every facade contextualized; every plan, diagram, and section particularly and exquistely well executed.”

“The selected buildings and urban planning projects uniquely and sensitively reconcile the principles underlying architectural design with the rapid technological advancements and the modernization of our society today. This year, there was a considerable emphasis on restoration, renovation, and adaptive re-use as the Green Revolution continues to impact cities and the buildings in which we live, work, pray, and become educated and culturally refined.”

“The Chicago Athenaeum believes that The American Architecture Awards serve the direct and distinct purpose of promoting Good Design and as a vehicle to further enlighten the general public’s understanding and knowledge about architecture and the design arts,” states Narkiewicz-Laine.
