PAR win an American Architecture Award


The Wilshire Tower proposal has won a 2016 American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum and European Centre for Architecture.

Wilshire Tower proposal by PAR in Los Angeles

The proposal was developed for the Architecture + Design Museum as part of Shelter, an exhibition that questioned how new forms of housing can respond to changes in the cultural fabric and physical landscape of Los Angeles.

With Wilshire Tower, PAR were interested in reimagining the skyscraper for a future, denser Los Angeles and explored how individuality and nature, two qualities emblematic of Los Angeles living, could be integrated vertically in the sky.

“The American Architecture Awards program,” states Chrisian Narkiewicz-Laine, President of The Chicago Athenaeum, “showcases the best of new American building design and urban design-oriented research by the nation’s foremost visionary designers.”

In December 2016, an exhibition of the winning projects entitled New American Architecture, opens in Athens, Greece. A catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

With special thanks to BuroHappold Engineering.
