The AIA California Council (AIACC) is pleased to announce the release of the 2011 AIACC Design Awards Video. For the first time ever AIACC is celebrating these projects with a narrated, online high-definition video, hosted on aecKnowledge. The AIACC Design Awards program highlights the diversity and innovation in design by architects in California. Capturing these incredible projects on video provides design professionals everywhere with the opportunity to learn from and get inspired by some of our nation’s top design talent.
Twenty-nine projects were selected by the jury for their outstanding design and innovation. Winning projects were diverse in size, scope, budget, and typology…from mixed-use towers in Guangzhou, China (designed by SOM to a “small project”–the Fung Shui cube designed as a mobile space to maximize the “chi” of the area. Each of the projects was recognized for its original approach to solving problems—whether a difficult site, a limited budget, or a challenge to reuse existing buildings in new ways.
