IIDA 2016 Library Interior Design Awards

The IIDA and the American Library Association (ALA) announce the opening of the 2016 Library Interior Design Awards. The biennial Library Interior Design Awards recognize achievement in library interior design aesthetics, creativity, and function.

“Libraries are constantly evolving to meet the needs of 21st-century patrons who are looking not only for technological capabilities, but also to be inspired, educated, and even entertained,” said IIDA Executive Vice President and CEO Cheryl S. Durst, Hon. FIIDA, LEED AP. “These awards honor innovation in library interiors, and we are proud to once again partner with ALA to recognize design solutions that support the many uses of libraries today.”

Submissions are now being accepted in nine categories: Public Libraries (30,000 sq. ft. and under); Public Libraries (Over 30,000 sq. ft.); Academic Libraries (30,000 sq. ft. and under); Academic Libraries (Over 30,000 sq. ft.); Special Libraries (30,000 sq. ft. and under); Special Libraries (Over 30,000 sq. ft.); Outstanding Historic Renovation Project; Single Space (a small project that focuses on a specific room or area in a library); and On the Boards (a project currently in the design phase and not under construction). For complete submission information, visit the competition website.

Winning design projects will be selected by a jury of distinguished design professionals. The deadline for project submissions is Friday, March 11, 2016. Winners will be honored and celebrated at the ALA Annual Conference held in Orlando, Florida in June, and their projects featured in Contract and American Libraries magazines, as well as in other publications and on the IIDA website.
