11/01/17 USC Architecture Faculty Receive Prestigious 2017 AIA|LA Design Awards

 

The American Institute of Architects Los Angeles held their 2017 Design Awards on Oct. 30, celebrating design excellence and Los Angeles-based architects and architecture. Two USC Architecture faculty were recognized as 2017 AIA|LA Presidential Honorees: Douglas Noble, FAIA and Lawrence Scarpa, FAIA. Associate Professor Doug Noble received the Educator Award for his work helping young professionals achieve licensure as well as his work with the Façade Tectonics Institute. Noble co-created “NotLy: Not Licensed Yet” 10 years ago in response to declining architectural licensing rates. Since 2007, NotLy has held over 400 classes with just under 20,000 attendees to help prepare young professionals for the Architect Registration Examination. Noble is also a co-founder of the Facades Tectonics Institute, which was established in 2008 as a USC-based research and education organization hosting conferences and publishing research focusing on building façade technology. Adjunct Professor Larry Scarpa received the Gold Medal in recognition of his innovative work with materials, sustainability and public interest architecture. Scarpa and his multidisciplinary firm Brooks + Scarpa also received an AIA|LA Design Citation award for Southern Utah Museum of Art and an AIA|LA COTE award for The SIX Veterans Housing on Monday evening. The latter recognizes achievement in the implementation of sustainability features. USC Architecture faculty were represented in each award category. Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects collected two Design awards: a Merit award for House Noir and a Citation award for Sunset La Cienega Residences. In the NEXT LA category, which recognizes unbuilt and to-be-completed commissions, Scott Uriu’s Baumgartner + Uriu garnered a Merit award for Los Angeles Residence. Receiving Citation awards were Warren Techentin Architecture’s Silver Lake Duplex and Twin Villa in Beijing, China, designed by Patrick TIGHE Architecture and John V. Mutlow Architects.
