Brininstool + Lynch Receives 2014 American Architecture Award
Wood House was one of sixty-four new projects selected for the American Architecture Award this month by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

Recognizing the most significant new contemporary architecture and urbanism in the United States, the American Architecture Award “pays tribute to new developments in design and underscores the directions and understanding of current cutting-edge processes consistent with today’s design thinking”. This highly acclaimed award honors a broad range of architectural works, including skyscrapers, commercial buildings, urban plans, private residences, and real estate projects. Common among these various types and scales, all awarded projects demonstrate a high standard of excellence in design, construction, planning, and sustainability.

“The American Architecture Awards program showcases the best of new American building design and urban design–oriented research by the nation’s foremost visionary designers” states Christian Narkiewiscz-Laine, Museum President of The Chicago Athenaeum.

“The American projects selected by the jury exhibit conceptual strengths that solve critical aesthetic, civic, urban, and social concerns, as well as the requisite functional, environmental, and sustainability concerns.”

“The selected projects for 2014 demonstrate the highest regard for vision and aesthetic image-making, which has traditionally defined the United States a leading design nation in this decade, the 21st Century, and in the history of Modern Architecture.”

This is Brininstool + Lynch’s third American Architecture Award.
