Share

The American Institute of Architects () Board of Directors has announced that Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects will receive the 2013 AIA Architecture Firm Award.

Tod Williams, FAIA, and Billie Tsien, AIA, have been working together since 1977, first forming their New York City-based practice in 1986. The pair, which has gained a reputation for excellence in designing public cultural and institutional buildings, has merited the honor thanks to their “exquisite care for detail,” “material integrity and sense of innovation.”

According to Toshiko Mori, who wrote of the couple in a recommendation letter: “Their work carries with it a spiritual value which transcends pragmatic solutions. Their projects respond to multiple and complex needs of clients, yet their solutions are simple and elegant. Their firm’s work brings forth the ideals of Modernism, yet is moderated with a contemporary sensibility and intelligence which makes their work rich, tactile, and useful.”

The firm will be honored at the 2013 AIA National Convention in Denver.
