Publishing Rights
All materials submitted to the 2022 Residential Design Architecture Awards become the property of SOLA Group, Inc. SOLA Group retains the right to consider all non-winning entries for future publication in Residential Design, but entrants will be notified and permission sought beforehand. Keep your own copy of all entry materials for your records. 

Awards and Recognition
All winning firms will receive their awards at a special event held concurrent with the 2022 AIA Conference on Architecture in Chicago. All winning projects will be published in the print and digital editions of Residential Design magazine and on RD’s website.

All entries will be judged by an independent jury of architects selected for geographic and aesthetic diversity.
