‘Today, the Los Angeles Business Council (LABC) honored the region’s finest architecture design projects, including the new Los Angeles Green Building Award, at the 38th Annual Los Angeles Architectural Awards. The Awards Program, which recognizes entire project teams (architects, developers and contractors), spotlighted the abundance of world-class architecture and sustainable development being built in Los Angeles today. Co-chairs Andy Cohen, FAIA, Executive Director, Gensler and Brooke Lauter, First Vice President – Corporate Communications, Arden Realty and key leadership from sponsoring companies presented the awards to more than 30 project teams across 17 architectural and building categories. The LABC Architectural Awards honor project teams whose developments improve the quality of architecture and enhance the urban fabric of Los Angeles. Awards were presented in 17 categories: Civic, Design Concept, Education, Green Building, Healthcare, Housing, Interiors, L.A. Pride, Landscape Architecture, Mixed-Use, New Buildings, Preservation, Renovated Buildings, Retail, Sustainability, Unbuilt and Grand Prize. All awardees were selected by a thirteen-member jury of distinguished peers including architects, developers and contractors. To receive an award, projects must be located within Los Angeles County and completed during 2006 or 2007 (“design concept” and “unbuilt” categories exempt). The Broad Contemporary Art Museum at LACMA received the grand prize for developing and supporting the vision for a new LACMA campus. The team designed a series of buildings, connective walkways, grand stairways, open plazas, sculpture gardens, and public art, all in an effort to connect the campus and establish an environment that would unify the new exhibition of contemporary art, with the balance of their current collection.’ Winner of the 38th Annual Los Angeles Architectural Awards in the category ‘Housing’: Project: LivingHome Architect: Ray Kappe Architects and Planners with LivingHomes Contractor: Profile Structures INC – modular Owner: LivingHomes All winners and more information: bustler.net
