Los Angeles Business Council announced the winners of its 53rd Architectural Awards, celebrating designs that embrace innovative design standards that enhance the way we live. Over four dozen projects were recognized for design innovation, with the Grand Prize going to the Herald Examiner Building, the Chairman’s Award going to UCLA, and the Community Impact Award going to The Beehive.
Culver City took honors for The Brick and the Machine as Best Commercial Office Building, VOX at Cumulus for Best Mixed Use, and Schaefer II for Best Office Headquarters.
.“This year the LABC is honoring projects that improve communities and neighborhoods in substantial and intentional ways,” said Mary Leslie, president of the Los Angeles Business Council. “Our honorees embody innovative designs that were not only crafted to reflect the needs and dreams of the people they were designed for, but created as spaces that facilitate progress.”
Nearly 350 leading architects, designers, building owners, developers and city and state officials were in attendance at the awards ceremony held at the Sunset Room in Hollywood. Winners from a pool of hundreds were selected by a jury panel of industry experts, including architects, construction firms, owners and developers.
