DOWNTOWN AKRON — The 2013 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Akron Chapter Design Awards Dinner took place April 9 at The University of Akron Martin Center.

The Awards Program recognizes the quality of work produced by firms and individuals in the Akron Chapter. An eight-member jury comprised of fellow design, community and industry members reviewed more than 50 qualified entries.

TC Architects, located in West Akron, was recognized for its redesign of the resident quarters for Akron General Health System’s main campus hospital, transforming it into a retreat for the doctors with triple the locker capacity, an eating area, TV lounge and more areas for computer access within the same square footage, shown below.

Deanne Frank, an employee of TC Architects, also was recognized for her senior capstone project. The University of Cincinnati capstone experience is designed to demonstrate excellence in architectural design strategies and applied skills. Frank’s project was one of two that received student awards out of 16 entries.
