Kem G. Hinton, FAIA, of Nashville, received the 2019 AIA Tennessee “Strickland Award” for his outstanding design excellence, firm and community leadership, and service to the American Institute of Architects and their members. Mr. Hinton recently celebrated the 35th anniversary of the firm he and his partner, Seab Tuck, FAIA, founded. Among the many iconic structures designed by Tuck Hinton Architects are the Bicentennial Mall, Frist Center for the Arts, Country Music Hall of Fame, Music City Center, and countless others during his unmatched creative and prolific career. Always pursuing the highest standards of architectural excellence, he has repeatedly received recognition by his colleagues.
He is also celebrated as an artist with his detailed drawings hanging in the homes, churches and offices as treasured remembrances of his talent. As an author, historian and speaker, he shares his insight and humor with all. Perhaps his greatest gift to others is his role as mentor in not only his own firm but locally, regionally and nationally. This was said of Mr. Hinton during his recognition: “He is clearly passionate about his own work, but what is more impressive is his dedication to making our world a more beautiful and interesting place to live.”

William B. Nolan –  2019 Samuel Morgan Award Recipient

William B. Nolan, of Oak Ridge, was awarded the 2019 AIA TN “Morgan Award” for his impressive legislative skills, and his knowledge and accomplishments in protecting the public in his role as Government Advocate for Tennessee architects. His civic and community service commitments are well known and lauded across the state.
Mr. Nolan was one of Tennessee’s youngest legislators, and continues to be a well respected legislative advocate known for his strength and principles while helping protect and lead us toward a better tomorrow. He understands the building industry and their duty to bring beauty and safety to our state in ways that few comprehend. He works tirelessly, but with a wonderful sense of humor and humility to protect the interests of not only the public, but of designers and architects. His gift for working collaboratively with others enables him to take great pride in his many successes promoting and serving Tennesseans.
