beautiful, accessible, and sustainable environments.

Wednesday evening the Amarillo, Texas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects held an awards reception for its biennial design awards competition.
Three buildings were awarded Distinguished Design Honors on the merit of their exemplary architecture and profound impact to benefit their local communities.
Congratulations to the below winning projects and architects:
7th & Polk Restaurant/Crush & 6 Car designed by Playa Design Studio

Dimmitt ISD Richardson Elementary designed by Parkhill, Smith & Cooper

The Firestone Building designed by Gregg Bliss Architect

All competition entries will be on exhibit at the lower level of the Ware Student Commons at Amarillo College.

On Thursday, August 29th, a surprise event was held at the Hillside location of the Santa Fe Federal Credit Union in honor of the pending retirement of Parman Reynolds.  Friends, family and acquaintances gathered for a chance to visit and say “adios and thanks” to the man who for many years has successfully practiced the discipline of electrical engineering in Amarillo and beyond.   


From what is told, the event was truly a surprise to Parman and was successfully accomplished with the help of a few friends and cohorts.  Considering invitations were sent out well in advance requesting RSVP’s, it was amazing to know so many people were able to keep the “cat in the bag”, so to speak.  So, on that evening, Parman along with his Wife, Son and Daughter-in-law, were able to gather and reminisce with friends and guests for a time.


Parman intends to have his Olsen Boulevard office closed by the end of October and with that, the electrical engineering dynamic in this area will never quite be the same. 


Parman:  Enjoy it all.  You made it happen and deserve all the wonderful days headed your way!  Blessings and Stay Energized!


All of us in the Design and Construction profession will miss you.  Well most of the time anyway, 😊.


Friends of AIA Amarillo,


Many thanks to all who came out to support the annual AIA Amarillo Sporting Clay Shoot at River Breaks Ranch.


We had a wonderful turnout and due to your generosity, we were able to increase our scholarship fund to assist a deserving student from the AIA Amarillo Chapter area.

We all had a great time with great food and fellowship.  Congratulations to all the prize winners.  That was some impressive shooting!

We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
