OPEN’s Garden School / Beijing No.4 School Fangshan Campus was awarded Architecture Merit Award by the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter. Mr. Li Hu, founding partner of OPEN, attended the ceremony and accepted the Award on behalf of OPEN’s team.
AIA New York’s annual Design Awards program celebrates outstanding architectural design, and honors the architects, clients, and consultants who work together to achieve design excellence. Awards are given in four categories: Architecture, Interiors, Projects, Urban Design.
“This year’s jury was demanding and thoughtful,” said Tomas Rossant, AIA, the 2015 AIANY president. “Their selections speak to new values: Form is no longer to be celebrated for its own sake, and architecture in its greatest expression must positively impact institutions, strengthen communities, act sustainably and resiliently, and spark optimism, curiosity, and generosity in the human spirit. The selected projects prove this can be done.”
