The Los Angeles Business Council (LABC) today announced three Pasadena locations are among the winners of its 51st Architectural Awards, recognizing projects that draw inspiration from Southern California’s unique landscape and history to create boundary-breaking designs that capture the imagination, reenergize public spaces, and add striking new silhouettes to the L.A. landscape.

A Linda Vista residence won a landscape architecture award, and an education award was given to the Kaiser Permanente Bernard J Tyson School of Medicine. In San Marino, the Huntington Library’s Chinese garden — The Garden of Flowing Fragrance — also won a landscape architecture award.

The sold-out ceremony set for tonight at the Beverly Hilton Hotel’s Wilshire Garden Terrace was expected to feature remarks from architectural legend Frank Gehry, recipient of the new L.A. Community Legacy Award and designer of many of Los Angeles’ most iconic landmarks.

Together, LABC believes the more than 20 award winners represent a new movement toward design ingenuity that rethinks how people engage with buildings and urban spaces.

“Los Angeles welcomes dream-chasers and fearless innovators who harness our region’s boundless creative energy to build something new,” said L.A. County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell. “From Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium to the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, these forward-looking architectural designs will captivate locals, attract new visitors, and inspire the next generation of visionaries.”

LABC received hundreds of submissions in categories including healthcare, education, and housing. The jury panel was composed of industry experts in architecture, design, engineering, building development and building owners.

The Grand Prize went to Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium & Entertainment District at Hollywood Park — site of Super Bowl LVI in February — for its unmistakable dramatic curves meant to reflect the sweeping Southern California coastline and connectivity to the outdoors. Designed by the Dallas-based international firm HKS Architects, the 298-acre venue features a translucent roof, concourses, and landscape designed to create the feel of an outdoor venue.

“This year’s winners break the mold for how creative, elegant design can build a better future for our city,” said Mary Leslie, LABC president. “Visionaries like the great Frank Gehry show us how architecture and development can help celebrate and reinvent L.A.’s rich legacy, while inspiring the next generation to do the same.”
