Can you BELIEVE it???
M. J. Neal Architects just won the 2008 Institute Honor Award for Interior Architecture from the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
It’s a great day, it’s a great, big, fat, new…. year!!!!
This project had already won an Austin AIA Design Award and the Texas Society of Architects (TSA) Honor Design Award, and let’s not forget the International IIDA Award (my favorite, see previous post)
The anecdote? We almost didn’t submit the project! Farley Studio was doing so well at competitions that when we were done submitting it, MJ, who was hungry and tired, said, “ah, let’s blow it off and go to Asti to eat… I was hungry and tired too…but something told me to submit Anthony Nak, so I stayed on and BAM! You never know, do you?:-)
Yey for being dogheaded when I’m hungry and tired and double yey for MJ’s design excellence!!!!
Here’s the video the TSA made for the 2005 State Design Honor Award.
