The American Institute of Architects, Tampa Bay Chapter, announced the recipients of their 2009 Design Awards. An awards ceremony, held in late June at NOVA 535 in St. Petersburg, Fla., honored Vectorworks firm rojo Architecture with the Chapter's Second Annual People's Choice Award.
The project, selected by the public as their favorite among the 65 entries, was ROJO Architecture’s ISPC Corporate Offices in Odessa. The 40,000-SF two-story office building has a strong horizontal façade comprised of bold modern lines, highlighted with deep blues, random glazing variations and a visually anchoring copper-clad mass, marking the visitor entry and executive offices above. The project received more than 21% of the 1,100 votes that were cast.
