Dwan Maintenance Building Wins 2015 AIA-Minneapolis Merit Award

The Minneapolis Chapter of the American Institute of Architects Minnesota (AIA Minneapolis) awarded five Merit Awards to projects by AIA Minneapolis architects that tell a story of excellence beyond design, reflecting the variety of forces that shape a building. Unique in its approach to creating a jury, the Merit Award encompasses the views of business professionals, real estate developers, community advocates, and academic leaders, as well as architects.

Shelter Architecture’s Dwan Maintenance Building, a redesigned golf course maintenance building demonstrating the City of Bloomington’s consistent commitment to attractive public spaces and high quality architecture, was honored alongside projects by Locus Architecture/Isenberg Associates, CITYDESKSTUDIO Inc., Alliiance, and BKV Group. John Barbour and Joan Bren accepted the award on Shelter’s behalf.
