The American Academy of Arts and Letters announced the 2020 Architecture Award winners today. The Academy’s annual architecture awards program began in 1955 with the inauguration of the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize and has since expanded to include four Arts and Letters Awards. This year’s winners were chosen from a group of 34 individuals and practices nominated by the members of the Academy. The jurors were Annabelle Selldorf (chair), Peter Eisenman, Steven Holl, James Polshek, Billie Tsien, and Tod Williams. Nader Tehrani was selected as the recipient of the 2020 Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize, an award which is given “to an architect of any nationality who has made a significant contribution to architecture as an art.” Congratulations Nader!

COVID-19 NOTE

Dear Clients, Colleagues, and Friends:

We wanted to update you regarding where NADAAA’s operation stands as we all confront the COVID-19 virus.

Your companies’ health and welfare, as well as that of our community and staff, is a top priority for us. Our firm has a robust technology platform that allows us to provide seamless service to all clients anywhere, anytime. Our team is meeting online every morning to go through project goals, deadlines, and priorities. We continue to meet with all teams each day to ensure the proper flow of information in order to meet deadlines. We will work to ensure as little disruption to your projects as we can accommodate.

Employee safety and wellness is a top priority, and we have implemented a firm-wide response plan prohibiting non-essential travel. We have a quarantine-with-pay protocol in place, should an employee be exposed to the virus or is sick in general. Every employee has a business laptop or home desktop with a robust BIM/communication support platform and may work from home if needed.

We intend to attend meetings via Webex, SKYPE, video, or phone calls; should an in-person meeting be required please let us know and we will set it up. That said, we respect that each employee has their own comfort level and we will allow them to act accordingly. In the event that employees are out sick, or unable to come to a meeting, we can make allocations for the principals to attend all necessary meetings, following appropriate physical-distancing protocols. In addition, we are sensitive to the uncertainty employees may be feeling and are communicating with them on an ongoing basis, reinforcing they can work from home and instilling confidence that we support them. The same goes for you and all of our clients. We are committed to you and getting through this period together.

Let’s keep the communication channels open. With respect, health, and safety!

Arthur Chang

Nader serves on A+U’s ‘Living in the Future’ Jury

Posted on January 6th, 2020 by Nicole Sakr

a+u has announced the winners of the Shinkenchiku Residential Design Competition 2019 – Living in the Future.

“What will the future look like? How can architects design dwellings to meet evolving living patterns and the challenges of the future? These are the questions posted of the seventy-six candidates who submitted to this competition, and indeed, the submissions diverged in both focus and genre. The questions also prompted fundamental challenges to how architects think about the context of the house, whether in its autonomy or the context in which it is grounded, be it urban or rural. The question of the “future” also assured a fair sense of speculation, narrative, and projection, imagining not only spaces of a time and place yet to exist, but also the fiction that holds it together.”

Get this month’s copy to see all the winners HERE.
