[Editor’s Note: This the second in a three-part series documenting the winners of the AIA 2018 Honor Awards, which are broken down into three categories: architecture, interior architecture, and urban design. This list covers the interior architecture awards, but additional segments spotlight winners in architecture and urban design.] The American Institute of Architects announced its 2018 recipients of the Institute Honor Awards January 12. The 17 winners were pulled from approximately 500 submissions from across the globe and five interior architecture projects took home the prize.

- Brian Caldwell, THINKTANK Design Group;
- Joshua Aidlin, Aidlin Darling Design;
- Kiyomi Kurooka, DWL Architects + Planners Inc.;
