We received a Special Mention from the Architizer A+ Awards 2014 in the Architecture + Learning category for our ‘Flying Carpet’ project. The official listing can be found on the Architizer website. You have to scroll down to the bottom – we are listed under Special Mentions. Unfortunately no images shown here, but this mention is a big deal for us as Architizer receives thousands of entries from hundreds of countries and has a top notch jury – so we are quite jazzed about this international recognition for our little project.
We received a 2013 AIA Honor award from the Huron Valley AIA for our ‘Flying Carpet’ project (shown below,) in the Small Projects/Low Budget category.
The project LUMANOTUS was recently published on the Sucker Punch Daily blog. Check it here.
Four area.architecture projects are featured in the new book PROCESS, edited by Ulf Mejergren and Anders Berensson with Pyo Miyoung and published by Damdi. In addition, we discusses our design process and the use of scripting, parametrics, and fabrication technologies in relation to the rubric of variability and non-standard means of production.
