Pinterest HQ and other projects take AIACC Design Award
Aug 1, 2016

The American Institute of Architects California Council has honored 21 projects with the 2016 Design Awards. The awards jury, Andrea Cochran, Anne Fougeron, Marlon Blackwell and Craig Dykers, surveyed 250-plus entries, spanning projects like museums, affordable housing and historic interpretations. The judges specifically sought out projects with “good bones,” “resolute in power,” and with the “ability to both understand and inspire,” noted the AIACC.

“I am always so impressed with the architecture happening in California and by California architects,” says Blackwell. “It is no secret the bar is set high for California’s architects, and those who belong to the profession should take great pride.”
