The 2018 Emerging Leaders in Architecture (ELA) program has just finished their second session of the year and they are off to an exciting start!

In the January session, the group heard from architectural historian Bryan Clark Green, Ph.D., Hon. AIA Virginia of Commonwealth Architects and Kelly O’Keefe, head of VCU’s Brandcenter. Bryan Clark Green, Hon. AIA Virginia spoke to the group about the principles of leadership in the architecture profession. He also discussed the origins of the profession and how the definition of who is an architect has changed over time. Kelly O’Keefe shared insights picked up during his life in branding and advertisement as well as during his time as an educator about the importance of creativity in leadership roles. Kelly implored the group to “Never let them take away your creativity”, something his father told him that sticks with him to this day.

The focus of the February session was serving communities and the group heard from excellent speakers. Kathy Galvin, AIA, spoke about her service on the Charlottesville City Council and how important architects can be when discussing policies for improving the community. Co-Founder of the Charlottesville Area Development Roundtable, Bob Pineo, discussed service being the backbone of the practice of architecture. Kurt Keesecker, AIA, spoke to the group about how each expert in the industry can bring a different set of skills to the table. Kurt discussed how he witnessed this take place through his service as Chair of the Charlottesville Planning Commission. There was also a tour of the Sunrise Neighborhood, a development built by Habitat for Humanity of Charlottesville. Rush Otis, of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville, discussed with the group the importance of collaborating with the community in assessing its needs, instead of applying a set plan of preconceived notions.

Both sessions were capped off with briefings on the group’s upcoming project. The target area for the 2018 ELA class is the Preston Avenue area of Charlottesville. The group will have their first project work session and meet the neighborhood stakeholders in March.

Special thanks goes out to the sponsors of the 2018 ELA program and to all who contribute in any capacity to make the program a success.

Design Forum Registration Open

Virginia Design Forum XIII | April 6-7, 2018 | Taubman Museum of Art

As boundaries blur between traditional art/architecture and mechanical assembly and reproduction, it is essential that we stop to assess the way in which this changes the creative process, the built environment, and the profession altogether. This year’s Design Forum XIII: BLUR will explore the way in which technologies are reshaping the boundaries between experiential, art and architecture, creating new links between artists and architects and enabling the exchange of ideas and techniques in new ways.

Registration for the Design Forum XIII is now open>>

Visit our Design Forum page for more on this year’s schedule, sponsors and venue.

The Design Forum two-day conference will showcase dynamic figures in art and architecture who have embraced the blurring of lines between the disciplines. Presentations from Eric Höweler, Doris Kim Sung, Nathan King, David Freeland and Refik Anadol, among others, will offer insight into how we can utilize the ever growing and changing resources that expand the limits of design.

With the Taubman Museum for Art, southwestern Virginia’s preeminent art museum, as the venue and Virginia Tech right around the corner, the location will undoubtedly serve to inspire us as we explore the intersections of art, architecture, and technology.
Participants can earn up to 7.5 AIA/CES learning units.

2017 AIA Virginia Prize Awarded

At 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, students at the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, The Washington-Alexandria Architecture Center (WAAC), and Hampton University were given a limited time challenge. By 9 a.m. Monday participating students had to turn in their design for a terminus for King Street at the Potomac River waterfront to celebrate its historic role as the origin of Alexandria and the front door of the City. It should be a significant public space that offers a destination, or as was written: ‘where one of America’s great streets meets one of America’s great rivers’. It should provide a counterpoint to the George Washington Masonic National Memorial at the other end of King Street.

2017 Design Awards Announced

AIA Virginia, a Society of the American Institute of Architects, honors work done by Virginia-based architects with the 2017 Awards for Excellence in Architecture. Also known as the Design Awards, these honors celebrate projects no older than seven years that contribute to the built environment and are clear examples of thoughtful, engaging design. This year’s jury has identified three Honor Awards, ten Merit Awards, and three Honorable Mentions. Award categories include Architecture, Contextual Design, Residential Design, Interior Design and Historic Preservation.

The AIA Virginia Design Awards are sponsored by Keith Fabry.

About the Jury
Jury Chair:  Yvonne Szeto, FAIA, partner with Pei Cobb Freed & Partners in New York City
Joan Blumenfeld, FAIA, design principal at Perkins+Will in New York City
Lorcan O’Herlihy FAIA, founder and principal of Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects in Los Angeles
Jeffrey Murphy FAIA, founding Partner of Murphy Burnham & Buttrick Architects in New York City
Alexander Lamis, FAIA, partner at Robert A M Stern in New York City

(image gallery follows)

In the ARCHITECTURE category

The jury considers aesthetics, adherence to the client’s wishes, proven and projected building performance and concept development during its deliberations.

Architecture Honor Award Recipient:

  • Lake House (North Wilkesboro, N.C.) by ARCHITECTUREFIRM, Richmond, Va.
    The jury says “There is great clarity to the overall design. The decision to wrap the building in wood paneling, both celebrates the strength of employing a singular material throughout while embodying the context of the overall site. The strategic openings in the design allow for a fluid indoor/outdoor experience and frame the views of the surrounding woods in an interesting way.”

Architecture Merit Award Recipients:

Architecture Honorable Mention Recipients:

  • Glenn and Towers Renovation + Addition, Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, Ga.) by VMDO Architects, Charlottesville, Va.

In the CONTEXTUAL DESIGN category

The awards for contextual design are chosen based on outstanding architecture that perceptibly reflects the history, culture, and physical environment of the place in which it stands and that, in turn, contributes to the function, beauty, and meaning of its larger context.

Contextual Honor Award Recipient:

  • Center of Hope Elementary School (Haiti) by Thrive Architecture, Charlottesville, Va.
    The jury notes: “The design of this school overcomes the challenge of highly limited resources by cleverly leveraging local materials, building practices and labor to create a piece of real architecture. Overhanging roofs and strategically placed operable openings eliminate the need for artificial ventilation, and simple building techniques using local metal pipes, recycled bags of Styrofoam, and other inexpensive and relatively lightweight components were chosen and assembled piece by piece without heavy equipment. The creativity in technique is matched by the integrity of the architectural resolution, resulting in something that is both beautiful and sustainable.”

Contextual Honorable Mention Recipient:

In the RESIDENTIAL DESIGN category

Aesthetic appeal and functionality are two long-established criteria for home design as are affordability and resource efficiency. The jury looks at each submission in its totality toward meeting those goals.

Residential Design Merit Award Recipient:

Residential Design Honorable Mention Recipient:

In the HISTORIC PRESERVATION category

The historic preservation category focuses specifically on excellence in strategies, tactics, and technologies that advance the art, craft, and science of preserving historically significant buildings and sites. The jury takes into consideration adherence to local, state, and national criteria for historic preservation.

Historic Preservation Merit Award Recipient:

In the INTERIOR DESIGN category

Interior design projects are judged on mastery of composition, functionality, material and color palettes, and well-integrated adherence to the highest levels of accessibility, health and safety, environmental, and occupant-comfort considerations, standards, and regulations.

Interior Design Honor Award Recipient

  • Rotunda Interior Renovation, University of Virginia (Charlottesville, Va.) by Glavé & Holmes Architecture, Richmond, Va.
    The jury notes “The architects did an exemplary job of balancing contemporary requirements with a respectful return to Jefferson’s programmatic vision for the building. The jury appreciated the skillful selection of furniture and fabrics of a timeless aesthetic. Thoughtful attention to scale, function and flexibility in the interior design created more spaces for study and collaboration — bringing students back to the heart of the university.”

Interior Design Merit Award Recipients:

  • DPR Construction Mid-Atlantic Headquarters (Reston, Va.) by SmithGroupJJR, Washington, D.C.
  • Sands Capital Management Headquarters (Arlington, Va.) by OTJ Architects, Washington, D.C.
  • Sky Loft (Washington, D.C.) by KUBE Architecture PC

Virginia Eye Institute Recognized with Test of Time Award

The Virginia Eye Institute, designed by 3north principal Sanford Bond, FAIA, has been selected to receive AIA Virginia’s Test of Time award. The award recognizes a structure not less than 25 years nor more than 50 years from the date of initial construction; in addition, the project should still carry out the original program in a substantial manner and must be standing as originally designed in appearance and in good condition. The award will be presented at the Visions for Architecture gala on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at the Hotel John Marshall.

Virginia Eye Institute

Located along the Kanawha Canal at the end of Richmond’s Huguenot Bridge, the Virginia Eye Institute is situated to take advantage of the unique site’s natural beauty and provide an environment that encourages patient comfort and healing. Completed in 1987, the building’s strong lines, light industrial aesthetic, and generous use of concrete and steel excited some controversy. Today, however, the Virginia Eye Institute has become a well-loved local landmark that still functions as originally designed.

When developing the design, the architect sought to create a place that fit seamlessly into its context and surrounding landscape while creating a facility that was conducive to both employee efficiency and patient experience. Successful elements include the waiting room with a large glass wall that overlooks the canal, providing patients with increased connectivity to the surrounding landscape and ample natural light. Three pods, each consisting of six examination rooms situated around a central nurses’ station, were designed to streamline operations for doctors and nurses. This layout is still in use today.

The site’s challenges also influenced the design aesthetic. Situated below the flood plain and filled with unstable soil, the site demanded a deep pile-driven foundation that led to a building supported by piers rather than a continuous footing. Raising the structure thus enabled the architect to pursue an industrial wharf aesthetic, taking advantage of natural light and choosing evocative materials and textures such as concrete, corrugated steel and exposed wood frame construction on the interior. A decorative strip of blue tile marks a “waterline” on a glazed concrete block wall that leads up to the patient drop-off and front door.

AIA Virginia recognizes the Virginia Eye Institute with the Test of Time Award as it remains a place for patients to receive care in a beautiful setting that provides connectivity with the surrounding landscape from within an ultramodern medical facility.

Jane Cady Rathbone, FAIA, to Receive the William C. Noland Medal

Jane Cady Rathbone, FAIA, Chief Executive Officer of Hanbury in Norfolk, will be recognized with the William C. Noland Medal at the Visions for Architecture gala on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at the Hotel John Marshall. The William C. Noland Medal is the highest award bestowed on a member architect and is intended to honor a distinguished body of accomplishments, sustained over time, that spans a broad spectrum of the profession and that transcends the scope of normal professional activities.

Jane Rathbone, FAIA

Through her prolific body of work and practice of nearly 40 years, Rathbone has become an international influence on the planning and design of living-learning communities as vital components in the academic, social, and architectural fabric of university campuses throughout America and abroad. Her colleague and nominator Nicholas Vlattas, AIA, says, “She has caused universities to recognize that intentional planning of the collegiate residential experience results in significant out-of-the-classroom learning and fosters sustained emotional attachment to place.” Today, her influence, and that of the firm is felt on more than 150 campuses.

One shining example of Rathbone’s campus vision is Tennessee’s Rhodes College, for which she led a team in 2000 to envision a master plan for the 21st century. Already a beautiful campus, the new construction, and renovations over nearly two decades were designed to enrich their architectural heritage, to create a robust student experience and to increase faculty/student interaction. Just five years into the transformation, Rhodes awarded Rathbone the College’s Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award for selfless service to the College and its campus. The success shows as Rhodes has experienced an unprecedented increase in retention and academic rankings over the past 17 years.

While guiding Hanbury, Rathbone has grown her award-winning firm into an internationally recognized practice. Hanbury has earned more than 100 design awards, and she has led a significant number of these award-winning projects. Rathbone seeks opportunities to motivate good design throughout the firm, leading the firm’s learning culture by inviting provocative lecturers and organizing programs to stimulate thinking, discussion and personal growth. In 2004, the firm was named the T. David Fitz-Gibbon Virginia Firm of the Year by AIA Virginia.

Rathbone shares her deep knowledge with colleagues, clients, students, the public and the profession, from teaching Hanbury’s Summer Scholars about “Strategic Planning in a Design Practice” to serving on the board of the Design Futures Council. Notably, she served on the board of the Virginia Foundation for Architecture as its home at The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design was established.

For her design excellence and dedicated leadership, AIA Virginia awards Jane Cady Rathbone the William C. Noland Medal.

Calder C. Loth Selected to Receive the Architecture Medal for Virginia Service

Architectural historian Calder C. Loth will be recognized with the Architecture Medal for Virginia Service at the Visions for Architecture gala on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at the Hotel John Marshall. The Architecture Medal for Virginia Service is AIA Virginia’s most prestigious public award, honoring an individual or organization that has made an unusually significant contribution to Virginia’s built environment or to the public’s understanding and awareness of the built environment.

Calder Loth

A tireless teacher and prolific author, Calder Loth’s efforts to preserve Virginia’s architectural legacy have impacted all residents of the Commonwealth. Loth spent four decades on the staff of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (DHR) as an advocate, educator, and historian after earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architectural history from the University of Virginia. Even after his 2009 retirement, he continues to be consulted for his expertise by individual landmark owners, Virginia historic site managers, universities, and international forums.

As former Branch Museum Director Dr. Craig Reynolds notes, through his “unmitigated passion and depth of knowledge, Loth has shielded buildings from the wrecking ball, championed historic tax credits, made preservation easements the standard, and helped develop excitement for our historic places among new generations.”

Kathleen Kilpatrick, Loth’s former DHR colleague and retired Executive Director of the Capitol Square Preservation Council, calls him an ego-free “rock star” committed to generously sharing his knowledge. Indeed, Loth has published dozens of articles and books, including the prize-winning volume, Virginia Landmarks of Black History (1995). He compiled the Virginia Landmarks Register’s fourth edition (1999), with nearly 1,800 entries representing the most comprehensive inventory of Virginia’s rich and varied architecture. And, he has championed architectural literacy through speaking engagements across the globe.

In recognition of his near half-century of service to Virginia and his accomplishments in communicating the full meaning of historic preservation and Virginia’s architectural heritage to both professional and lay audiences, AIA Virginia honors Calder Loth with the Architecture Medal for Virginia Service.

Frazier Associates to Receive Firm Award

Frazier Associates will be presented with the T. David Fitz-Gibbon Virginia Architecture Firm Award at the Visions for Architecture gala on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at the Hotel John Marshall. Sometimes called the “firm award,” it is the highest honor bestowed by AIA Virginia to a Virginia-based architecture firm. It recognizes a firm that has consistently produced distinguished architecture for at least 10 years.

Frazier Associates

The core principle of Frazier Associates’ 31 years of architecture practice has been to help preserve, sustain and creatively revitalize Virginia’s communities and institutions through historic preservation and contextual design. Their extensive work in architecture, historic preservation, adaptive reuse and revitalization totals nearly 3,000 projects. The scope of their public and private architecture in dozens of Virginia communities consistently demonstrates the staying power of good design in the rejuvenation of historic buildings and creation of new ones. In addition, Frasier Associates has drafted more than 50 sets of design guidelines and pattern books for historic downtowns, neighborhoods, corridors and rural villages throughout the Southeast, and has been at the forefront of implementing wayfinding programs for communities in Virginia as well as nationally.

Recognizing that downtowns are the heart of our communities, in 1985 the Commonwealth of Virginia initiated a statewide Main Street program in cooperation with the National Main Street Center of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. As design specialists for the program, Frazier Associates provides design training and workshops for communities as well as facade design services for property owners.

Frazier Associates has been recognized with more than 150 awards for individual projects or professional achievements, on local, regional and national levels. Preservation Virginia presented the firm with the 2007 Mary Mason Anderson Williams Award, its highest honor, for statewide work in historic preservation.

In making this award, AIA Virginia celebrates Frazier Associates’ enduring dedication to Virginia’s historic architecture and community design.
