The Los Angeles Business Council will host hundreds of architects, designers, business leaders and elected officials on Thursday, Dec. 1, at the Beverly Hilton for the 52nd annual Architectural Awards.
The event will recognize more than four dozen projects for design innovation. The recipients were selected from a competitive pool of hundreds of submissions.
Assemblyman Isaac Bryan (D-Los Angeles) and Los Angeles City Councilmen Curren Price, 9th District, and Marqueece Harris-Dawson, 8th District, are scheduled to attend along with Michael Murphy, chair of architecture at Georgia Tech and a board member for Mass Design Group; Mia Lehrer, president of Studio-MLA; and Mary Leslie, president of the Los Angeles Business Council.
Los Angeles Mayor-elect Karen Bass will accept the Community Impact Award on behalf of the Destination Crenshaw project team.
The awards honor design projects that build community and create meaningful, inclusive spaces with the Grand Prize going to Sixth Street Viaduct Bridge and the esteemed Chairman’s Award to the Audrey Irmas Pavilion at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Destination Crenshaw and landscape architect Mia Lehrer will also be honored with top awards. The keynote address will be given by Michael Murphy, architect, author, educator and founding principal of MASS Design Group, whose pioneering work in Rwanda and the United States is changing the way the built environment is being drawn upon to solve the climate and social crises we face.
The reception will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, International Ballroom, located 9876 Wilshire Blvd. at 11 a.m. For information, visit labusinesscouncil.org.
