On Saturday, April 13, we celebrated the 2024 Design Awards recipients, including the second annual Community Award which was bestowed upon Southampton Town Supervisor Maria Z. Moore. Thank you to the Board, our MC, and Celebration Committee Members, and all who made the 2024 Design Awards such a wonderful showcase of design and architecture.  I would like to especially thank all who submitted projects for consideration and to the Jurors for their expertise and energy.  

Special word of gratitude for the Premier Sponsor of the 2024 Design Awards Celebration, Jennair.  We hope you will consider joining AIA Peconic for a CEU presentation and special event hosted by Jennair at The Ranch in Montauk on August 6.  Please find the save-the-date here.

May 9 | 1:30 – 4:30pm
Sage Hall, Sag Harbor Learning Center

Sag Harbor is featured as the subject of NYIT 5th-year design studio theses. After two semesters of research and dedicated effort, students are ready to unveil their visionary plans for our community.  From traffic studies to housing solutions, join us as these bright minds delve into critical aspects of our community, such as historical context, regulatory codes, and environmental considerations. For me, these presentations are not merely presentations; they are glimpses into how this generation envisions the future of Sag Harbor.

Small Firm Community / Legal Presentation

AIA Peconic Members have shown interest in holding space for a subset of Members who would like advance the mutual interests of architects practicing in small firms.  To start, we plan to host a CEU presentation in June on general legal matters of particular interest to small firms.  Do you own or work for a small firm?  What other kinds of services, opportunities, or programs would you like to see developed locally?



Thank you to our 2024 Sustaining Sponsor
