Program Description

CRANawards Banquet

Join us to celebrate the best in residential architecture. The event begins with a cocktail hour with plated hors d’oeuvres. Over dinner catered by Funky’s, our Jury Chair will make remarks.


The 2020 CRANawards Jury Chair is David Darling, AIA, IIDA, ASLA. David Darling is a founding partner of Aidlin Darling Design, formed with Joshua Aidlin in 1997, with a shared interest in exploring design across a wide range of scales, programs, and disciplines including institutional, commercial and residential architecture, as well as furniture, landscape, interior, and product design. Founded on a closely held conviction that design can engage all of the senses, his work has pursued an interest in the connection between design, food, art, culture and place. Mr. Darling has augmented this multi-disciplined pursuit through teaching, through his involvement with the James Beard Foundation, Slow Food USA, AIA, IIDA, ASLA, and through his studio’s trans-disciplinary design work. 


After Mr. Darling’s presentations, the 2020 AIA Cincinnati CRANawards will be presented. Submissions for the 2020 CRANawards are due February 29, 2020 and are made online: https://www.aiacincinnati.org/cran-awards.
