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.

New LEED Platinum (pending) Mixed-Use Project by Pugh + Scarpa opens in LA

Bicoastal, cutting-edge architecture firm Pugh + Scarpa has just completed a new 12 unit Mixed-Use, LEED Platinum(pending) building in Los Angeles. Cherokee Mixed-Use Lofts is an urban infill, mixed-use, market-rate housing project. The building is inspired by the series of paintings by the British artist Patrick Hughes titled, Prospectivity, whose paintings appear to be ever changing(click for video) and physically moving while being viewed. At Cherokee the main architectural feature of this project is the building’s owner-controlled operable double facade system. By allowing the occupant to adjust, at will, the operable screens of the building façade, the facade is virtually redesigned “live” from within the space, reflecting the occupants of the building within, in real time. In effect, it becomes a live canvas to be painted upon daily or more often.

Cherokee is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum (pending) Certified building in Hollywood and is the first LEED Platinum Certified mixed-use or market rate multi-family building in Southern California. The building distinguishes itself from most conventionally developed projects in that it incorporates energy efficient measures that exceed standard practice, optimize building performance, and ensure reduced energy use during all phases of construction and occupancy.Cherokee Lofts by Pugh + Scarpa
