The Gold Medal is AIA Minnesota’s highest award bestowed upon an individual member. It serves as recognition for a lifetime of distinguished achievement and significant contributions to architecture.
2014 Recipient:

Julie Snow, FAIA, graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. After living and working abroad for several years she came to Minneapolis, working for several small firms before spending six years at HGA. She began her practice in the midst of a recession, while teaching at the College of Architecture at the University of Minnesota. Julie now leads, along with Matt Kreilich, AIA, a studio-based practice, Snow Kreilich Architects, located in Minneapolis.

AIA Minnesota President Tom Hysell, AIA, said, “Julie Snow deserves the Gold Medal and so much more. Her body of work has consistently exemplified the excellence in Minnesota design. Her graceful modernism—from elegant cantilevered spaces in oceanfront houses to the elegant rooflines of U.S. border stations—achieves simplicity that only comes from the highest rigor in design and attention to detail.”
