Office dA and MOS win P/A Awards
The Progressive Architecture (P/A) Awards were announced last month, and Taubman College was represented well. Dean Monica Ponce de Leon's private firm Office dA won for Thunder Stadium in St. Paul, Minnesota, and former Muschenheim Fellow Michael Meredith's office MOS won for their Drive-In and Park in Marfa, Texas.
This was the year of the 55th Annual P/A Awards. According to ArchitectMagazine.com, the awards are designed to change over time. "Every year for the past 55 years, a jury of architects and architectural experts has accepted the herculean task of reviewing hundreds of submissions of unbuilt building projects to identify a handful that together embody the term 'progressive architecture.' No juror ever serves twice, new projects get submitted every year, and architecture itself is in a constant state of evolution, so each jury inevitably arrives at a different definition of progress.
