A Seattle high-rise using a first-of-its-kind core system. A staircase that looks like a floating ribbon. A performance venue named for a rock-and-roll pioneer. A museum designed to look like an athlete in motion.
What do they all have in common?
They’re all steel-framed. And they’re all winners.
Specifically, these four projects, as well as five others, are winners of the 2022 AISC IDEAS² Awards. AISC made the big announcement during the first session of NASCC: The Steel Conference in Denver.
“I always look forward to seeing the IDEAS² Award winners, and once again the industry has made it very difficult for our judges to select winners among an outstanding pool of submissions,” said AISC President Charles J. Carter, SE, PE, PhD. “It’s truly inspiring to see the ways today’s most creative minds work with structural steel to create modern landmarks. Congratulations to everyone who worked on these projects!”
The Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel (IDEAS²) Awards are the steel industry’s highest design honor. To learn more about the project teams, judging criteria, and the 2022 juries, please visit aisc.org/ideas2.
