Each year, AIA Cleveland recognizes excellence in design by inviting local firms to submit their best work to be reviewed by nationally renowned juries from all over the country.

In 2018, AIA Cleveland is pleased to announce that the Cleveland Design Awards will be held in the recently renovated Westin Cleveland Downtown. This year's Jury Chair and Keynote speaker will be Matthew Kreilich, FAIA from Snow Kreilich Architects. Snow Kreilich Architects was the recipient of this year's AIA National Architecture Firm Award.

Matthew Kreilich, FAIA
As design principal and partner of Snow Kreilich Architects, Matthew Kreilich is the heart of the firm’s collaborative working model taking an active role in both strategic and detail design resolutions in the studio. His passion lies in the belief that in addition to solving complex and pragmatic needs of a client’s program, design has the transformative power to enhance our everyday life experiences. Matthew provides design leadership and insight into all of the firm’s projects, as well as acting as the project designer on some of the studios’ most significant projects.

Matthew’s design leadership and experience continue to be recognized both locally and nationally. Matt was recently honored with the AIA National Young Architect Award for outstanding design leadership and locally recognized with the Minneapolis/St.Paul’s Business Journal’s 40 under 40. His work has received numerous Awards including MN AIA Honor Awards, the National AIA Honor Award, Progressive Architecture Award and the Holcim Award. Matthew was also the recipient of the prestigious Ralph Rapson Traveling Study Fellowship.
