There's a sort of anticipation about arrival and the architecture implies a certain dynamic that you're going to experience both inside and outside.
It looks very comprehensive all the way down to the plates and selection of the glassware. Very intensive.

A geometric and form extravaganza

The Imax sphere becomes an iconic symbol for the project. The fact that you can walk within the skin of the globe adds another layer of resolution that makes the skin manipulation notjust ornamentation

The project is successful in taking a huge building program and breaking it down to a series of fragments each one on its own terms, is articulate and developed.

This is a "collage" project with a very sophisticated scale hierarchy.

Unbuilt Desi n Award

Gestures work for architectural and urban scales simultaneously.

Building works as a frame between the

architectural spaces and context.

Handles the problem of a big building quite well -engages the large scale and the intimate scales very well.

A perfect solution for a very complex building. The form truly respects its setting and creates a civic icon. The planner's defying of enclosing walls on the bay side provides a wonderful cradle for the diverse functions yet organize and unified them on a very strong frame. The entry side is less successful and because of its intricacy is inconsistent, perhaps competing with, and not an evolution of the idea of the bay side form.

Project: Lively Arts Center
location: Daytona Beach, Florida
Architect: Farmer Baker Barrios Architects, Inc.


Project has an incredible integrity behind it.

Beautifully developed, outstanding detailed proj ect.

Strong relationship between the formality of the context and the architect ural statement made.

Uses wood elements to make a very dignified space that integrat es intimate and monumental scales.

An exquisite and finely detailed structure. The design extends the normal proportions and patterns of the carpenter gothic style, providing a very impressive form with great posture and an inspiring space filled with light. The one thing important about that design is the sensitivity w ith which this is presented. The technique communicates the delicacy, refinement and subtleness of the design that will be there when it is built. To illustrate that now in the drawings is an important part of the entire architectural process.

Left to Right: Jose, Dave, Tim. Brian, Kalili. Karen. Jess. Marg Bob

The influences of the Robert G. Currie Partnership, Inc., architect ural practice founded in 1969 and based in Delray Beach, Florida since its inception, are broad and diverse. The f irm is medium size, by architectural firm standards, and is currently at ten, including four registered architects. The founding partner, Robert Currie, an alumnus of Harvard's Graduate School of Design and The Architect's Collaborative (TAC), was a student of Walter Gropius. Currie arrived in Delray Beach in 1969, following three years of practice abroad. While in Greece, he worked on master planning new towns in Saudi Arabia with TAC and later worked and taught architecture in Sydney, Australia. His first project upon arrival in Delray Beach, was a major commission with Palm Beach County which provided him with an opportunity to create a piece of real architecture in a reg ion with a shortage of memorable buildings. The

design of the South County Administrative Complex was startling to the Palm Beach County community and was met with decidedly mixed reviews, although the AlA Florida recognized the project with an Honor Award juried by Richard Meier, FAIA and Charles Gwathmey, FAIA.
The firm's professional, technical and administrative staff, including partner Jess
M. Sowards, are a team of people as diverse as their portfolio of projects. Their reputation for progressive and creative design in a fun and casual work environment has served them well in retaining and maintaining a committed staff, some of whom have remained for twenty years.
Principals and staff members have taught as architectural educators and, in fact, for many years hosted fourth-year interns from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, giving more than forty students hands-on experience in a variety of areas and employing as many as ten former interns.
A significant characteristic of the firm's practice has been diversity. They have specialized in "not specializing in specific building types" as evidenced in their collection of 39 award-winning buildings and building types which include numerous historic restorations; over a dozen fire stations; twenty hotels; including several in Saudi Arabia and Wales; four bridges; U.S. Embassy commissions in China, Cyprus, Jordan, & Spain; civic centers; office buildings; retail centers; restaurants; residential developments; churches; synagogues and master planning projects. In fact, this diverse ability gave the firm the

The AlA Florida Millennium Convention for 2000 was a celebration of the third oldest state organization of architects in the U.S. with AlA Florida's birth in 191 2. Twenty-one architects met in Jacksonville, Florida on December 14, 1912, led by M. Leo Elliott of Tampa, to establish the Florida Association of Architects for the purpose of unification and consolidation of effort to be successful with state legislative issues. No building departments, no board of architecture, no qualifications -based selection process, and no organized lobbying were the state of architectural affairs in 1912. The 88th convention in Boca Raton honors the past and seizes the future with a generous cross section of architects statewide recognizing Florida's leading architects and enduring architecture.
A truly notable publication, AlA Florida's 1912-2000 history of leading architects and enduring architecture, is chronicled in a 250-page book entitled, "Florida Architecture, A Celebration" This milestone publication is AlA Florida sponsored, member supported with financial contributions and is the collective efforts of this year's President for 2000 as author/researcher, Diane Greer, past editor of the "Florida Architect" as editor and John Howey, FAIA, as book critic, fund raiser and task force chair. Each AlA member should request a copy from AlA Florida for a very

modest price.
A series of Millennium Awards from the President identified the top three design firms of the Twentieth Century: Spillis Candela and Partners, William Morgan, FAIA and Rowe Holmes Associates Architects, Inc. Additionally, the Florida firms of the 20th century, architects with outstanding service to AlA, design firm leaders for each decade and some specialty service awards are presented to "honor the past". A "millenium poster", sponsored by McGraw Hill, is now available for each AlA member to frame in celebration of the millenium year.
The annual meeting of AlA Florida elected new officers and reported the status of the association. With membership in AlA Florida back at 1988 levels, with almost 3000 members and all thirteen chapters reporting growth. Our Tallahassee staff, state board of directors and chapter components receive our applause for this measurable success. Continuing education reporting is again necessary in 2000 with significant courses offered at the Millennium Convention. Norman Koonce, FAIA, Chief Executive Officer for AlA international, assisted in the presentation of awards at the Honor Awards dinner which closed the convention activities.
One special note of triumph is recognition for deceased AlA

Florida's Millennium Award of Honor winner as "Woman Architect of the Twentieth Century", Marion I. Manley, FAIA, of Coral Gables. After serving six years as AlA Florida's First Vice President without ever holding the President's role, one of South Florida Chapter's (AlA Miami) Presidents, AlA Florida South State Director, Marion persevered to become AlA Florida's first woman Fellow in 1956 and the state's only woman Gold Medalist in 1973. This previously male-dominated profession has now demonstrated proper acceptance of women by electing Debra Lupton, AlA, President in 1999, an honor Marion never received.
Lessons learned from past and present leadership will be the fuel to allow AlA Florida to continue to mature in the next millennium as Florida architects "seize the future" and further shape Florida's built environment. Only through continued member support and member participation will AlA Florida be recognized as a successful force and strong advocate for great Florida architects and inspired architecture.
Keith Bailey. AlA, is Senior Vice-President and Leader of Architectural Services for the Southeastern Region of 3D/International of Orlando, Florida.

When asked to write a commentary on the jury process and how our peers reach conclusions in bestowing on us these awards of recognition, my initial temptation
was to bore you with pedantic theoretical gobbledygook. I will instead take the road of pragmatism.
The question to be asked is what really transpires when three architects are faced with the herculean effort of sifting through 200 plus submissions to reach consensus for an award.
In my experience, and I have seen this occur repeatedly, the jury will take the first hour and quickly filter out 90% of the submissions so as to then be able to spend the next

3 hours (or into the night for that matter) debating 10% of the projects.
Here is the initial jury-sifting phase that I focus on. How do we get to the sweet sixteen?
Did the architect overcome a challenging program and budget? Did his restrictions create opportunities for an architect to take his place?

Is the architecture a total piece of work, i.e. is the interior affected by the exterior? Or is it

just a shell container of generic, repetitive environments that is neither spatial nor contextual? So many projects are rendered as a Hollywood set; an exterior skin that is treated as a graphic,
or as wallpaper.
Does the architecture break any new ground in its investigations? Just because a project is large does not make it interesting (beach condo highrise).

Is the project detailed well? Many projects fall into the trap of being zippy, two dimensional cartoons that on the surface look interesting, but fall apart upon closer examination. General lack of rigor in its detail is a common occurrence.

Did the architect think about how he presented the information? Is it graphically interesting? This is a design submission, hence, it would be a foregone conclusion that the firm would design the submission. Graphic complexity does not necessarily win over thatjury.

Are the photographs of high quality? It is still puzzling that a firm would invest the time and effort to assemble a submission and then have photos that are out of focus, discolored, or generally uninteresting? Hire a professional photographer. Archive your work.

As a general commentary, juries award projects that are stylistically interpretive. It is rare when an award will be given for mimicking a Mediterranean, Williamsburg, Federal, Mission, Prairie, Palladian style, no matter how pure its representation (how many Bilbao step children will we see?).
Pragmatic? You bet. But it is only
then that discussions of elaborate
theoretical positionings occur.

After all, practice without theory is just a trade.

prosaic, an uninspiring

Architect: Rogers, Lovelock & Fritz, Inc. spatial sequence.

This project succeeds in building a hierarchy of both indoor and out door circulation spaces, to use the center as both an orientation and an anticipatory aspiring volume. It takes cues from the campus vernacular without being imitative in a direct way -the architecture is interpretive.

For the budget, the project is rigorously detailed and consistent. Forms are compelling. Seen as fragments.

Reductive -not mannered or decorative.

Pretty stripped down.

I Very refreshing. Impossible problem.
Difficult budget. Very limited possibilities -is rea lly just about an

entry, circulation and massing.

The breakdown, the use of a very controlled color palette -the assemblage of these forms, which could be deadly and repetitive, offer a compelling object on the landscape, and exploits every opportunity possible given the limitations.

The way the stairs are,

the enframements -if you will -and the stair

graphics all add up in a very controlled way. Simple.

Of all the projects -this one has the greatest degree of difficulty, the

l hardest to get architecture out of -in the end, it seemed less contrived, less forced, than any of the other projects.

Project: China Grill Cafe/Aventura Mall
location: Aventura, Florida
Architect: Zyscovich, Inc.
Of all interior projects, this one is the most consistent to itself. It really explored a multiplicity of details, forms, and materials. The project offers a spatial variation and a kind of dynamic that seemed both clever and also varied, yet within a pretty consistent aesthetic that is both graphic and elusive; solid, transparent and translucent all at the same time. An experiential place to eat. Every surface is manipulated in a very controlled and deliberate way.

The design is in part influenced by climatic considerations not only in terms of solar ventilation, but also respecting artificial light profile regulations.

Beautiful way of integrating a formal order with informality.

Very good porosity to massing as it relates outside to inside.

Very well proportioned spaces.

A very masterful composition in a strong regulating geometry provides for a very unified form with visually meaningful negative space definition. This house is the latest in a series and I would like to see the pattern evolved into more adventure in creating interior spaces. A beautiful design except for the toilet room in the middle of the living areas.


The building is notjust a sum of its individual units.

An interesting hybrid where single family housing is integrated into a multi-family typology.

Complex continues the tradition of innovation in housing in Miami Beach.

Unit plans and sections are w ell resolved.

Building mass absorbs public space in its upper levels. Building picks up on regional principles -trellis, screens, openness between units.

An excellent example of incorporation of a variety of living spaces in a compact form. The vertical and horizontal zoning of units provides for a very rich lifestyle with communion with the environment. It is a fine urban design solution.

opportunity for its first historic restoration effort in 1990. The Old School Square project in the heart of Delray Beach was the catalyst that literally transformed the downtown area from a blighted and depressed area to a thriving retail, entertainment and cultural hub and opened the door to another dozen preservation commissions. Their proudest legacy may well be this comprehensive grouping of buildings, along with their public involvement in shaping and altering the community.
Members of the firm have always contributed to their community through serving on boards and accepting pro-bono assignments.

Mailman Center for Child Development
"The distinctive design of this building is the most recognized structure on the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center campus, and its likeness has come to represent the child health care programs of the University and Jackson's Children's Hospital within our community and across the nation. It is a highly used building and has served us and the children and families we serve well.
Daniel Armstrong, Ph.D. Director
Architect: Spillis Candela
& Partners, Inc.

This project is a late example of concrete brutalist architecture. It clearly displays the influence of LeCorbusier, and Paul Rudolph as well as Latin American tropical design and represents what was at the time an ongoing international pre-occupation with certain ideas about materials, structure, mechanicals and environment. Its flexibility in plan no doubt has served the client well even as the requirements of building have become more complex. The walls are manipulated with skill. The materials have weathered well. The brise solei I on the south fa<;ade act as passive solar shades. The combined clear-span flexible floor plans and long term materials helps make the building a landmark on the Medical Center campus.

SQUARELlNE(tm) from iJlbruck ArciJitectural Products
Illbruck Architectural Products, a manufacturer of design-oriented ceiling tiles and wall panels, is introducing its new, high-tech looking SQUARELINE metal ceiling tiles. Designed for today's modern buildings and large open areas, the tiles provide high acoustical control and are competitively priced. There is also a creative diamond pattern that is available.
