From a public park bathroom in Texas to doors made from beer bottles in an old Milwaukee brewery, this slideshow features some of the winners from the American Institute of Architect’s Small Project Award Program. Whether the project is the finishing detail that makes a business unique, a storage solution in an apartment or an intriguing installation at an exhibit, these small projects demonstrate the architects’ inspired design thinking and knack for detail.
