A building whose facades and forms Zahner played a major role in engineering, manufacturing, and installing has received the highest honor from AIA Los Angeles last week.

Zahner engineered, manufactured, and installed all of the complex metal skin and forms for the structure, and was recognized during the ceremony for the many contributions to architectural elements of the building.

Emerson College receives highest honor award for AIA LA

Morphosis Architects took home the highest honor of the evening for the Emerson College in LA. AIA Los Angeles presented awards to 21 local firms last week during its annual design awards ceremony. The evening’s program migrated through three historic Los Angeles venues, with pre-reception cocktails at the Bradbury Building, the ceremony at the Million Dollar Theater, and a dinner party at Grand Central Market.

The Design Awards ceremony, hosted by Getty Center’s CEO James Cuno, awarded firms with three tiers of recognition including honor, merit, and citation. Jennifer Yoos, FAIA, a principal at VJAA in Minneapolis; Patricia Oliver, FAIA, Dean of the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture at the University of Houston; and Georgina Huljich, of Los Angeles-based firm P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, filled the judging panel.
