The AlA Toledo Design Awards Program seeks to recognize design excellence for private and public projects of quality, and honor works of distinction located in Northwest Ohio. The awards stand as an affirmation of the diversity and quality of our contemporary regional architecture. The AlA Toledo Design Awards Program is founded on the belief that excellence knows neither region nor style, and is not a function of budget, project size, or building type.
