Los Angeles Awards Celebration - AIA/LA Design Awards, NEXT LA, AFLA's Design Green 


FORM attended the annual AIA|LA Design Awards and Party last night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Design Awards party offered time for sharing architectural musings, as well as time to view the new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion. Honoring excellence in work by Los Angeles Architects, this years award recipients were not revealed until the ceremony, which allowed for candid reactions from award winners.

In the NEXT LA category, which featured yet unbuilt designs, 20 jury awards were given in three classifications: Citation, Merit, and Honor. The Honor Awards were given to Michael W Folonis Architects for their UCLA 16th Street Outpatient Surgery and Oncology Center, as well as Your Building Here, for their Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington DC. The same design from Your Building Here also received the Best in Show for the NEXT LA category.

Church in the Netherlands Redesigned as a House

This A-frame house in Rotterdam wasn't always a house. Before its current owners transformed it with the help of Ruud Visser Architects, the structure was a temporary garage, and before that, it was a church. Built in the 1930s, the architects built a new house inside the church situated as an independent object with three stories contained within the church. The entire church is left open on the river side, which allows light to stream in through the dormer windows as well as the brand new floor-to-roof windows and sliding glass doors. The living space is located on the bottom floor and then two more floors are stacked on top, but the edges never touch the sides of the walls or the roof of the church.

Guilherme Torres of Brazil recently designed this futuristic table, called "JET." Made from a metallic core and MDF boards, the table was inspired by a plastering float, an object used in construction to level surfaces. The architect chose bright red and yellow for the tables following childhood memories of the Jetsons' bright and sleek furniture.
