Recognizing the best in local architecture and interior design, the INDesign Awards are presented each spring at the annual Smart Growth Lecture; this year’s lecture will be held in April. The awards honor exemplary design in commercial and residential categories for architecture and interior design, historic preservation/restoration.

To be eligible for awards, projects must have been completed in the calendar year 2012 in the parishes of Lafayette, St. Martin, St. Landry, Acadia or Vermilion. All commercial projects in the architectural category must be submitted by an architect licensed in the state of Louisiana. A license is not required for residential projects.

In the interior design competition, commercial projects require a Louisiana State Board of Interior Designer license number. There is no such requirement for residential interiors.

This year, winning residential projects will be profiled in IND Monthly on April 1 and commercial projects in ABiz on March 15.

Guest speakers for the awards luncheon are selected from among a cadre of national experts leading the movement toward building more livable communities in the U.S., often mayors, city planners or CEOs of professional organizations promoting solid principles of community development. IND Monthly/ABiz’s goal is to bring cutting-edge thinkers to Lafayette to help channel the many assets of our community toward the goal of responsible growth.

buchanan_loftsIn 2013 The INDesign Awards and Smart Growth Lecture will be part of INNOV8, a week-long series of events coordinated by The Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce to foster innovation and connectivity among innovators in our community. Details will be released soon.
