The results are in for the fifth annual People’s Choice Competition, launched on June 20 by the AIA Florida and the Florida Foundation for Architecture. With more than one million votes cast from 14 countries and 21 states, this year’s winner is the Institute for Human Machine Cognition designed by Quina Grundhoefer Architects.
“The competition was quite fierce,” said Vicki Long, CAE, Hon. AIA, AIA Florida executive vice president. “Three top contenders were in a continuous back and forth race for first place, but the Institute for Human Machine Cognition held its late lead and captured the race! It was exciting to see the votes coming in fast and furious.”
The top three buildings are:
- 1. Institute for Human Machine Cognition in Pensacola. Designed by Quina Grundhoefer Architects.
2. Tampa Riverwalk in Tampa. Designed by Kimley-Horn and Associates.
3. The Care Point Health & Wellness Center in Tallahassee. Designed by BKJ, Inc. Architecture.
A big thanks to everyone who voted for their favorite building!
