The 28th annual Accent on Architecture Gala was held on Thursday, April 13th, 2017, at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC.
Thank you to our generous sponsors  for making the 2017 Gala possible.
The Accent on Architecture Gala is an unparalleled annual national event that recognizes and celebrates excellence in architecture and design. Each year, the Gala brings together more than 500 national and global leaders in design, government, business, and education to honor outstanding colleagues in the field. The Gala is made possible through sponsorships and contributions from AAF’s generous supporters.
Marilyn Jordan Taylor , FAIA, Professor of Architecture and Urban Design and former Dean at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design, received the George M. White Award  for her commitment to bettering communities through design.
AAF also honored Dallas Mayor Michael S. Rawlings  with the Joseph P. Riley Award for Leadership in Urban Design .
Proceeds from the Gala directly support the work of AAF and its three international design centers, which provide design leadership and sustainability programs to leaders in architecture, design, education, public policy, urban planning, and historic preservation.
