10/31/18 USC Architecture Faculty Honored Among AIA|LA Winners

 

USC School of Architecture professors Larry Scarpa, Lorcan O’Herlihy, Alvin Huang, and Steven Erlich were among this year’s crop of AIA|LA winners. The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles chapter awards prizes in three categories: Design Awards for completed projects, Next LA Awards for uncompleted projects, and AIA:LA COTE Awards for projects heavily focused on sustainability and environmental impact. Scarpa’s work on Amino South Los Angeles High School won a Design Award in the Honor category, the highest distinction, while his Angel Lake Station project in Seattle was awarded a citation, also in Design. O’Herlihy also took home an Honor-category Design Award for his work on the Mariposa 1038 apartment complex, a Merit award for his UCSB Student Housing project, and a Next LA citation for his work on the MLK1101 Supportive Housing complex. Erlich's work on the Stoneview Nature Center in Culver City also received a Merit Design Award, while his Otis College of Art and Design Campus Expansion project took home an AIA:LA COTE Merit Award. Huang’s work on the as yet uncompleted Nansha Scholar’s Tower in Guangzhou, China was honored with a Next LA citation distinction as well.


Winning projects ranged from personal homes, museums, and metro stations, and each was judged based on innovation and their tangible impact on the urban communities around them. A jury of architects, designers, and academics from around the country selected the winners, citing the high quality of the work and describing the awards as “one of the most competitive in the United States.”
