BNIM Among California Architects Honored with Prestigious State Awards Program

San Diego, Calif. — Pacific Center Campus Development – Amenities Building has won a 2017 AIACC Design Award from the AIA California Council. The project was chosen with a total of 26 projects to receive awards based on their design excellence.

Five jurors selected Pacific Center Campus Development – Amenities Building out of more than 250 entries for a Merit Award. The jury, including Greg Verabian, AIA; Stephen Kieran, FAIA; Mark Jensen, AIA, Kim Yao, AIA, and Tom Oslund, sought out projects that rose above to become exceptional.


The 26 winning entries range from interior office headquarters to memorials and museums; from affordable housing to historic interpretations. They jury selected work with “good bones,” that was “resolute in power,” and with the “ability to both understand and inspire,” with accurate, careful and extreme specificity.


 The Amenities Building was designed with dining, meeting, and learning spaces that blur the boundaries between the architecture and landscape to create a dynamic social environment and foster a spirit of community within the new, purpose-built facility for a Fortune 500 technology company.


Other winners include projects by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Michael Maltzan Architecture, Inc., Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, and Aidlin Darling Design, among others. A full gallery of the recipients will soon be available to view on the AIACC website.


The 2017 AIACC Design Awards will be presented at the Monterey Design Conference held October 13-15, 2017 in Pacific Grove, CA.
