A serene mausoleum, a respectful addition to the American Swedish Institute, a new staff support facility for the shipping hub of the Dollar General store chain, and the conversion of a historic Chicago landmark by Target Stores were among the eight projects recognized by the AIA Minnesota Design Awards.

The roster of winners also comprised a colorful new main library for the city of McAllen, Texas and three diverse residential projects encompassing historic preservation, homage to a mid-Century master, and contemporary urban infill.
