We recognize community leaders and their contributions to our built environment.
Each year the Foundation honors leaders from the community for their contributions to our built environment. Past honorees include Senator Kirk Watson, Alan Graham of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Liz Lambert of Bunkhouse Group, Council Member Chris Riley, and former Mayor Will Wynn.
The annual honorees include at least one individual and at least one organization (public, non-profit, or private-sector) who demonstrate leadership consistent with the Foundation’s mission through the projects they initiate, lead, or champion; through influential decision making; or through financial contribution. The individuals and organizations we honor typically work outside of architectural practice, representing Austin’s broader community and making a difference in the way we all experience life in Central Texas.
We recognize the scope, scale, and variety of contributions to our built environment. We welcome nominations for anyone who meets these criteria. Honorees are selected by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, are recognized during the annual Form:Function celebration, and receive an art glass piece created by Austin glass artist, Kathleen Ash of Studio K Glassworks.
