    MICHIGAN AWARDS EXCELLENCE IN ARCHITECTURE

    The Michigan Chapter of the American Institute of Architects has announced its annual Excellence in Architecture awards. Sixteen projects designed by Michigan architects received honors in building, interiors, sustainability, and other categories. All of the firms, including Harley Ellis Devereaux, which received an interiors award for their work on their own Chicago office (photo by Anthony May Photography), were cited for their ability to meet the needs of the client in a fresh and creative way. ArchitectureWeek will take a look at this and some of the other award recipients.

    HYBRID WALL SYSTEM SHOWS ITS METTLE

    While precast concrete is an outstanding architectural material, its heavy weight can limit where and how it's used. A recently completed project demonstrates, however, that a new type of hybrid wall system combining cold-formed metal studs and precast concrete can reduce the weight of architectural precast and expand opportunities to apply precast technologies. In the next issue, building-materials expert Michael Chusid will explain how this system was used in an addition for the renowned Huntington Library in San Marino, California.
