The Los Angeles branch of the American Institute of Architects announced its 53 winners last night. Nabbing the very top honor was a West Los Angeles home done by Barton Myers Associates. Nice job, Barton Myers. The paper quotes Carlo Caccavale, associate director of AIA/LA, talking about the house: "...very modern and U-shaped, with a central courtyard, cement floor and a roof that sits on metal pillars. The side walls of the house are basically garage doors that roll up, leaving the house completely open. It's a total marriage of indoors and outdoors." Photos taken from the firm's web site; hopefully those architects are hung over and don't mind. More photos of home via link here.
