At the 2014 American Institute of Architects state convention in Nashville, Tennessee, BMa took home two awards. The first was a Merit award for the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center at the University of Tennessee (a joint venture with Blankenship & Partners). The second was an Excellence award for the design and renovation of BMa's new studio located in downtown Knoxville. There were 14 awards in total this year, with seven going to firms in East Tennessee. The annual awards program honors built works of distinction designed by AIA Tennessee members. The program also brings to public attention outstanding examples of architecture.
