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.
