Last night, architects from across the state gathered to recognize the top residential projects in Georgia, and those designed by Georgia architects, at the annual “Build Something Great Awards.”
The celebration included a keynote by NASA’s Sonia Miller—an architecture graduate turned project manager for the country’s space program—and drew more than 200 attendees.
Five projects were recognized for top honors in categories ranging from single-family homes to sprawling urban mixed use developments. (Click the project name for more details and photos).
