Los Angeles AIA Awards 2008

by Brian Libby

Three projects received top honors for built architecture in the annual design awards of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA): the Water + Life Museums and Campus in Hemet, California, by Lehrer + Gangi Design + Build; the Art Center College of Design's South Campus in Pasadena, by Daly Genik; and the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility in Suitland, Maryland, by Morphosis.

The LEED Platinum-certified Water + Life Museums were recently covered in depth in ArchitectureWeek. The AIA/LA jury commented: "To get LEED Platinum is a remarkable accomplishment in itself, and then in a very handsome building of this scale in this location is quite a feat. This is a 100-year building."

Presiding over the honors were jurors Craig Dykers of the acclaimed Oslo-based firm Snøhetta, designers of the new Oslo Opera House and the visitor center for the World Trade Center site; David Lake of Lake/ Flato Architects in Austin, Texas; and Michael Palladino, a longtime principal with the Los Angeles office of Richard Meier & Partners Architects. Twenty-five awards were given to Los Angeles architects for projects across the United States and around the world.   >>>
