Presented as part of the 38th annual Los Angeles Architectural Awards, the inaugural Los Angeles Green Building Award has gone to Belzberg Architects. Hagy Belzberg’s firm won the honors for the design of a permanent home for the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, scheduled to open in 2010 in Pan Pacific Park. The 15,000-square-foot, two-level facility, all of it underground, will be constructed entirely of formed concrete, with the insulating green roof doubling as a public park. LEED Silver certification is the goal.
Also honored by the Los Angeles Building Council were Ankrom Moisan Associated Architects, which claimed the Green Building Award for built structures for the Luma condominium in the South Park neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles, and HKS, recognized for unbuilt structures for the W Hollywood.
