    2015 AIA HONOR AWARD - MUSEUM OF THE WEST

    The jury commented: "This project is the whole package.

    Aesthetically - The skillful marriage of old and new "west" culture - there is a discerning restraint in the execution of refined forms and respectful use of regional materials.

    Sustainability - Thoughtful biomimetic investigation and re-interpretation of regional influences and materials - from water capturing ribs of the cacti structure to the practical craft of Native American basket weave reinterpreted as a façade that provides structural form, shade and lightness.

    Cost responsibility - Proving that good design can be affordable."
