Awards & Recognition

LMN’s work has received particular acclaim for engaging the public realm in unique expressions of place, as demonstrated by more than 200 local, regional, national and international design awards, including seven National AIA awards—generally regarded as the highest level of design achievement. In recent years, LMN projects received awards in each of three categories of the National AIA Honor Awards program: architecture; interior architecture; and urban design. This breadth of recognition reflects our all-encompassing, integrated approach to architectural design and civic place-making.
