Announced in the November issue of Architectural Products, the PIAs aim to showcase a wide-range of innovative building-related products that the readers, including architects, specifiers, designers and building owners/operators, use most in their project specifications.
The award is designed to determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products. Products were assigned to a diverse body of judges including architects, interior designers, lighting designers and veteran A/E/C writers. The group of 35 independent industry professionals then reviewed the entries and selected the products they found most innovative and worth investigating.
