Design Excellence Award Winners

Today we had the opportunity to celebrate with the 2015 Design Excellence Award winners. The award recognizes exceptional work in architecture, landscape architecture and urban design. The Silver Spring Civic Building, designed by Machado Silvetti, won the first annual Award for Design Excellence. Four projects received the Jury Citation Award. They are the Headquarters of Rupert Nurseries, designed by Muse Architects; the Cultural Arts Center at Montgomery College, designed by Smith Group JJR; the Town of Somerset Pool Bath House, designed by McInturff Architects; and Eleven55 Ripley, designed by Shalom Baranas Associates.

The Montgomery County Planning Department is accepting applications through July 21 for the 2016 awards. To be eligible, projects can be public or private projects located within Montgomery County; must be completed and in use; and must be built within the past 10 years.
