Diversity of Materials Showcased in 2012 AIA Seattle Design Awards

The latest AIA Seattle Design Awards celebrate how different individual materials come together to create architecture. There are smooth glass facades, sculpted concrete, time-worn rock, aged wood brought back to life through adaptive reuse, and reclaimed metal presented as stylish remnants of industrial history.

Lakeland Elementary School in Auburn, Wash., designed by DLR Group. Jury Comments: [The relationship between the buildings] yielded a powerful solution by drawing on a unique combination of color, strong formal relationships, and a series of dynamic and interconnected [spaces] that simultaneously enhanced the function of each individual school, while maintaining a pervasive ethos of playfulness and fun for the students.

Honor Award

University of Washington West Campus Student Housing Phase I in Seattle, designed by Mahlum. Jury comments: As a series of buildings, the project was applauded for its successful creation of public space at the urban (as well as the building) scale, which helped foster a sense of community and interaction that spanned between the buildings and to the neighborhood as a whole.
