Our 2017 jury:

  • Allison Williams, FAIA, AGWms_studio
    Allison Grace Williams FAIA is an architect and has amassed an international portfolio of large scale civic, corporate, cultural and research facilities. In practice at SOM, Perkins+Will and AECOM, Williams’ inventive instincts, collaborative drive and inspiring, interdisciplinary design approach have generated authentic, relevant buildings. The work poetically bridges between culture, technology and the environment and conveys the values and traditions of the audience and place.
    In 2017, with this 35-year foundation in corporate practice, and from an uncommon perspective, Williams created AGWms_studio as the first step toward the Next: To attract provocative design partnerships that prioritize art form and design process in relevant, crossdisciplinary venues and to formalize academic involvements.
    Williams is an Adjunct Lecturer at Stanford University, and a frequent academic critic and design competition juror. A Loeb Fellow at Harvard Graduate School of Design, Allison earned both her B.A. in the Practice of Art and M.Arch (and named 2015 Distinguished Alumnus in Architecture) from University of California, Berkeley. Williams is featured in a curated exhibition Celebrating Excellent Black Architects, as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2017, and in 2016 by Architizer News, From a to Zaha: 26 Women Who Changed Architecture.

  • William Leddy, FAIA, Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects (LMS)
    A founding Principal of LEDDY MAYTUM STACY Architects in San Francisco, William Leddy, FAIA, believes that design excellence has an important role to play in leading our communities toward a just, sustainable future for all.
    For 30 years Leddy has been a national leader in the design of regenerative architecture that celebrates our place in the natural world. His firm has received over 140 regional, national and international design awards and has been recognized by numerous organizations including the American Institute of Architects, the French Institute of Architects, the Norwegian Association of Architects, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the Urban Land Institute. LMSA is one of only three firms in the nation to have received eight or more AIA COTE Top Ten Green Project awards. Leddy has lectured widely and served as visiting professor at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, the University of California, Berkeley, the California College of the Arts and the University of Oregon. Leddy was elected to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in 2003 and has served on the National AIA Committee on the Environment Advisory Group (as chair in 2013) and the AIA California Council Committee on the Environment.
    LEDDY MAYTUM STACY Architects is honored to be the 2017 recipient of the National AIA Firm Award.
  • Zoë Prillinger, Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects (OPA)
    Zoë Prillinger is a principal of Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects (OPA), an idea-driven office committed to finding design solutions that both expand the possibilities inherent in architecture and resonate within their particular context.  While every project originates as a response to specific requirements of site, program and client, each evolves as an exploration of its own internal potential rather than reflecting a predetermined style. In all the work, there is an emphasis on communicating architectural meaning by creating powerful emotional and perceptual resonances.  Shaping and choreographing spatial experiences through the consideration of movement and formal logic results in work that is distinctive for its conceptual clarity and physical presence.
    OPA has been featured in publications including MARK magazine, The New York Times, Metropolis, Wallpaper*, Architecture, Architectural Record, and GA Houses, and in exhibitions at the GA Gallery in Tokyo and the Storefront Gallery for Art and Architecture. The University of Chicago has commissioned a current installation in a partner program with the 2017 Chicago Biennial.  OPA has received numerous American Institute of Architects San Francisco and California awards and the Architectural League of New York’s ‘Emerging Voices’ award. Zoë Prillinger received BA and M. Arch degrees from Princeton University and has taught at Harvard University and the University of California, Berkeley.
