Conducted annually by AISC, the IDEAS2 awards recognize outstanding achievements in engineering and architecture on structural steel projects around the country.

Project team members include owner Burnham Plan Centennial Committee, Chicago; architect UNStudio, Amsterdam; associate architect Garofalo Architects Inc., Chicago; structural engineer Rockey Structures LLC, Oak Park, Ill.; general contractor Third Coast Construction, Chicago; and Consultant Dear Productions Inc., Oak Park, Ill.

The Burnham Pavilion is a merit winner in the category of Projects Less Than $15 Million, making it one of only four projects around the country to earn an award in this classification.

Each year, the IDEAS2 awards honor national and merit award winners in three categories, based on constructed value: Projects Less Than $15 million; Projects $15 Million to $75 Million; and Projects Greater Than $75 million.

Each project is judged on its use of structural steel, with an emphasis on creative solutions to project requirements, design innovation, aesthetic and visual impact of the project, innovative use of architecturally exposed structural steel, technical or architectural advances in the use of steel, the use of innovative design and construction methods, and sustainable design
