Architecture Is Fun named AIA Chicago Firm of the Year is honored for their commitment to FUN, collaboration and their designs for “deeply humanistic and courageous” projects.
This American Institute of Architects award recognizes outstanding achievement, excellence, and contributions to the architectural profession.
Architecture Is Fun is a collaborative practice exploring the nexus of architecture, education and experience. For the past decade, this small successful studio spread its influence as educative design strategists, consulting to major organizations in myriad fields. Because the studio works closely with museums, shopping malls, developers, educational facilities and non-profit associations on a wide range of issues, they build accessible places of living, learning and fun that are critical for human growth and development.
Zurich Esposito, Former Executive Vice President AIA Chicago states, “a jury of their peers was moved by the quality of Architecture Is Fun’s work, the impact of their projects on Chicago’s built environment, and their dedication to integrating fun into everyday life, work and play.”
Architecture Is Fun is humbled by this honor. Sharon Exley, Peter Exley and the Architecture Is Fun team thank their clients, colleagues, and communities for collaborating and making an impact. Design matters.
