....And we're back. So much has happened during our short blogging hiatus, but we first want to highlight some of our recent recognition for some of our beloved past projects.
Los Angeles Conservancy Preservation Awards
This year’s Chairman’s Award of the 2017 Preservation Awards hosted by the Los Angeles Conservancy was presented to the project team behind SurveyLA: The Los Angeles Historic Resources Survey. Led by the City of Los Angeles, Department of City Planning, and the J. Paul Getty Trust, SurveyLA consisted of a wholesome effort between public and private entities toward what’s been recognized as the “largest and most comprehensive survey ever completed by an American city.” The award was presented at the LA Conservancy’s 36th Annual Preservation Awards Luncheon earlier this month on May 3rd at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. At the luncheon, our team was recognized for our contribution in this 10-year effort which included a mix of survey work and preparing historical context statements. We wrote the Chinese American Historical Context statement, as well as the Industrial Context statement in collaboration with LSA Associates. Additionally, we participated in survey efforts for the South Los Angeles Community Plan Area. We are proud to have been involved in such a momentous endeavor!
Dorothy Wright Brick and Mortar Award
All of our hard work at the Historic Westside School in Las Vegas has finally paid off. On May 17, 2017, the City of Las Vegas Historic Preservation Commission recognized the rehabilitation of the Historic Westside School Campus with the Dorothy Wright Brick and Mortar Award. The project was further recognized for its rehabilitation efforts in the “Proclamation from the office of the Mayor” declaring the month of May as “National Preservation Month” for the City of Las Vegas.
