HMC Receives Three C.A.S.H. Design Awards by Evan Troxel

I worked on two of these projects with some great teams and friends - Middle College High School and Elementary School #9, both for LAUSD. I learned so much working on them. Congratulations to both teams for all of your hard work and for making more decent learning environments and architecture.

HMC Architects/School Advisors received three design awards at the C.A.S.H./AIACC Leroy F. Greene Design and Planning Awards Ceremony on February 26. The firm was honored with an Award of Honor for the Orchard School Library, an Award of Honor for LAUSD’s Middle College High School, and an Award of Merit for LAUSD’s Elementary School #9.

Apple named greatest brand of the last 50 years by Evan Troxel

Respect. The entire design team at Apple flew to London to receive awards for best brand and best design studio of the last 50 years. Let that sink in for minute. 

D&AD chief executive Tim Lindsay:

The people, companies and brands celebrated tonight are the true visionaries of the past 50 years of commercial creativity. Their work has changed the way we live our lives, the way we communicate and the way we perceive businesses and each other.

Design is important. Apple has changed how we perceive and interact with things. You should watch Gary Huswit's Objectified to get a sense of it.

Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facility Wins AIA Design Award  
  
 As a designer on the project, I am extremely proud to announce that the  Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facility  that I featured earlier this year took the  Citation for Design award  in the unbuilt category at the AIA Pasadena Foothill 2010 Design Awards. As part of the Ideas Competition, the team created an iconic boundary crossing facility, the gateway for a 20-mile bridge linking three regions in the Pearl River Delta: Hong Kong, Zhuhai, and Macao. The project parameters were limited to a man-made island of 1.3 million square meters in the Pearl River Delta, northeast of the Hong Kong International Airport.
