StudioWTA has received numerous American Institute of Architects (AIA) awards for design excellence at the local, regional, and national levels. We’ve been offered accolades from NCARB, the most prominent professional organization in our field, and from the Bruner Foundation, which honors architectural projects that enhance urban life. New Orleans civic entities such as the Historic District Landmark Commission, the Vieux Carré Commission, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and New Orleans Magazine have also recognized the work of studioWTA.
