Our Los Angeles studio received awards in two categories at this year’s AIA|LA Design Awards. Plant Research 1, a project we completed for the University of California Riverside, received the Honor Award in the educational category for built projects, the highest recognition in that category. For unbuilt “Next LA” projects, our 1811 Sacramento office building project received a citation award, one of two commercial/mixed-use projects to be recognized.
Yan Krymsky, design director of our Los Angeles studio, and August Miller, a senior project designer in the studio, attended the event in person and received the award for UCR Plant Research 1 on stage. The jury praised the research facility’s “spot on proportions” and “beautiful repetition,” along with its overall design that “makes it a place one would genuinely want to work in every day.”
