AIA Honor Awards 2006

by ArchitectureWeek

In January, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced the 2006 recipients of their national Honor Awards. The 30 chosen projects in architecture, interior architecture, and urban design will receive the AIA's recognition of excellence at the institute's annual convention in June.

The common thread among these projects by U.S. architects is their sensitivity to context, as appraised by a diverse jury. The projects themselves represent a diversity of type, scale, and location, from a modest house in California to a regional plan for a Palestinian State.

One of the Honor Awards for Architecture went to the Museo Picasso Malaga, designed by Gluckman Mayner Architects in association with Camara/ Martin Delgado Arquitectos. The museum is dedicated to the works of Pablo Picasso and fits snugly into the historic city center of Malaga, Spain, the artist's birthplace.

The architects fully restored the 16-century Palacio de Buenavista to house the main entry and permanent collection galleries and added six new buildings to enclose a total of 80,000 square feet (7400 square meters). One large building, for the temporary exhibition galleries, plus five smaller structures also create a new public plaza.   >>>
