AIA Grand Rapids 2023 Honor Awards

It was a special night for our team as we celebrated four Honor Awards, Jordan Van De Walker’s recent licensure, Matt Portice's graduation, Kyle Sutton's scholarship, and our chapter’s centennial anniversary!


Through the annual Honor Awards program, the AIA Grand Rapids Chapter recognizes excellence in architecture throughout the region. The program promotes the value of good design and encourages members to pursue excellence through their work and service to the public. The program celebrates its chapter architects and their work, promotes the profession, honors clients, and acknowledges contributions to the construction industry.

Integrated Architecture received four honor awards from the AIA GR, highlighting three projects.


The chapter recognized its local Emerging Professionals, which included IA's Jordan Van De Walker, Matt Portice, and Kyle Sutton.


In June, Jordan became licensed as an architect in Michigan. He is a member of the AIA and is NCARB certified.
