Atelier Scale

Jury Winner, 2021 A+Awards, Architecture +Landscape

Atelier Scale is a Los Angeles-based landscape studio that has perfected the delicate balance between macro and micro architectural and urban scales. Regardless of the project size, from large to small, their designs are realized as interactive articulations of the relationships between the whole and parts, groups and individuals. Take for instance their Restroom in the Mountains or The Wave: Both projects are organized around module systems that allow a high degree of flexibility, allowing them to be adapted to the topography of their respective sites without sacrificing the aesthetic appeal or overshadowing the surrounding context.

Popular Choice, 2021 A+Awards, Multi Unit Housing – Mid Rise (5-15 Floors)

From adaptive reuse to social housing, this office places social interaction at the heart of their designs — a conviction underlies their rethinking of housing, community and educational settings. Collaborative design processes are baked into their practice, which draws on the active participation of Principals Hank Koning, Julie Eizenberg, Brian Lane and Nathan Bishop to create architecture that promotes sustainable neighborhoods. Indeed, their unique approach to myriad programatic types can equally be attributed to a design and technical team who are similarly invested in humanist values and environmental agenda.

odd+architects

Jury Winner, 2021 A+Awards, Architecture +Brick

Jury Winner, 2021 A+Awards, Architecture +Stairs

The designs of this Ecuador-based design studio are found at the intersection of architecture, landscape, urbanism and culture. Though a process akin to ecological anthropology, they study the relationships that emerge through cultural adaptation within various geographies. In this way, they strive to create architecture that is not only highly contextual, but that is also integrated with its natural surroundings. This relationship between landscape and built form is on full display at A House in the Andes, where carving access areas through the mounds exposes rammed earth walls, mimicking the ancestral ‘Chaquiñán’ – a system of trails used by the ancient Andeans.

Jury Winner, 2021 A+Awards, Multi Unit Housing – High Rise (16+ Floors)

Studio Gang has produced some of the most striking architecture in America over the past decade. When it comes to innovative textural façades that add movement — even rhythm —to the urban environment, Studio Gang truly is a leader in the field. Projects such as One Hundred, Solar Carve and Aqua Tower have pushed the bounds of the skyscraper typology by rethinking the role of sunlight in façade design, tower siting and massing. Ever the versatile firm, the adaptive reuse of a former coal plant for Beloit College Powerhouse and and the geological massing of the Richard Gilder Center at New York’s Museum of Natural History further underline the eminence of this Chicago-headquartered practice.
