Last week at the 2018 AIA Emerging Professionals Awards, B&A personnel were honored to receive multiple recognitions from the Fort Lauderdale and Miami Chapters of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

B&A has a rising star in its ranks with the name of Ian Dixon! The Rising Star of the Year Award is given by AIA in recognition of an emerging professional in South Florida who has shown exceptionalism in leadership, ingenuity, initiative and commitment within 10 years post-graduation. Ian’s strong design skills coupled with his technical knowledge, computer software experience, and personal commitment make him an incredible asset to the firm.

Additionally, Renzo Lopez, current Florida International University (FIU) student and B&A Intern, was bestowed the Best Portfolio Award by the AIA in recognition of his past designs. Renzo’s impressive portfolio is comprised of selected works from 2015-2017, including B&A’s Miami Springs Senior Center that he completed 3d visualizations for. AIA’s Best Portfolio Award is given in recognition of an undergraduate or graduate student in South Florida who has created the most unique and innovative design portfolio.

Congratulations to both of B&A’s Emerging Professionals!
