    I'm so excited to see the latest crop of COTE Top Ten winners ... with some first-time winners in the mix, three wins by Gensler (wow!), and a really interesting mix of project types. There is much to be learned from these Case Studies, and I know I'll be learning (and posting) about them in the future, too.
     
    Winning firms include LPA, Lake Flato Architects, Shepley Bullfinch, Richter Architects, Gensler, Leers Weinzapfel, Farr Associates, Woodhouse Tinucci Architects, Unabridged Architects, and Brooks + Scarpa Architects.
     
    I am especially excited to learn more from the clients and how they collaborated with their design teams to reach this level of design excellence.
     
    Thank you to the terrific jury, which included Bob Berkebile, Andrea Love, Vivian Loftness, Roy Decker, and William Horgan, and to the many hours of dedication from the Technical Review team. This award is rigorous, and the commitment of jurors and reviewers is what keeps it so.
