2017 AIACC Design Awards

Photographer: Darren Bradley.

Architects hanna gabriel wells received a Merit Award for the UCSD Spanos Athletic Performance Center.

The jury stated the project is playful yet restrained. The sense of air and natural ventilation works nicely with the structure’s purpose. There is perfect balance here and it gives homage to Irving J. Gill.


Photographer: Nick Merrick, Hedrich Blessing Photographers.

BNIM Architects received the Merit Award for Pacific Center Campus Development – Amenities Building.

The jury stated the building has strong moves, and folds into its landscape nicely and respectfully. The structure also has a few tasks—connecting people, functions, and environment—and succeeds at all.


2017 AIACC Residential Awards

Congratulations to Jonathan Segal, FAIA for receiving 2 Merit Awards in this year’s AIACC Residential Awards. Both projects actually received AIACC Honor Awards within the Design Awards program in 2016 which is quite an accomplishment.

Jonathan Segal, FAIA for The North Parker.

The jury stated the project is clean, restrained, and innovative—all the attributes a jury wants to see when awarding exceptional work. It works well for the community to create such a strong sense of place where once before there was none.

Jonathan Segal, FAIA for Mr Robinson.

The jury noted, there is innovation and obvious quality that cannot be denied here, and the work should continue to be applauded. Everyone who visits or occupies this space will feel the value of the work—from the daylight schematics to the open front store plans.
