Adding to several other recent design awards, The Barbarian Group project was honored in the 2015 national American Institute of Architects Awards, which will be presented at a cerermony at the AIA Convention in Atlanta in May.


Jury Comments

“The resulting space is both informal and spatially complex, elegantly combining plywood detailing with high-tech computer milling to create the desk’s sinuous, undulating form.”
“This is an ingenious transformation of a generic office component: the table.”
“It’s more than a sculpture—it’s innovative, sustainable, daring, and youthful.”
