This year’s AIA awards for Housing have come out and the winners are gorgeous. We had to share a few of our favorites with you.
Named for the french word for stone, “the Pierre,” by Olson Kundig Architects, is nestled into the owners’ favorite spot on their property, this outcropping of rock. It reminds us of the house Howard Roark built in the Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.
“RelicRock” by DCH Global, Inc. is a “prototype for a sustainable building system” built from 99% recycled steel which achieved a LEED platinum rating. We love how wonderfully it blends with the Scottsdale, AZ landscape.
The Jesuit Community Center by Gray Organschi Architecture is another that strives for sustainability, but it’s also wonderfully old-school. Those windows are so Corb, and the rigid geometry smacks of 40s International modern, but with wood instead of glass and steel. A+ guys, A+.
