  The American Institute of Architects is marking its 60th anniversary. More than a decade ago the Honolulu chapter began inviting the public to vote for their favorite recently completed project.

President Geoff Lewis joined us in the studio this week to talk about the competition among its members with some 37 newly completed projects. From single family homes, condos and businesses the designs were just not here in the islands but offshore too.
