City on City by Zellner Naecker Architects received a Citation award from the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in the NEXT LA category.  

The scheme anticipates re-purposing a series of masonry, wood, concrete and pre-engineered metal buildings in the Los Angeles Arts District into a mixed-use commercial project with a range of new uses focused on art, food, creative work, leisure, recreation and pop-up retail. Significantly, the project explores creating two new significant additions to the urban site: a flying “horizontal skyscraper” balanced on two legs and an adjacent automated parking structure. 

The AIA | LA NEXT LA jury was made up of Christopher Hawthorne, Architecture Critic for the Los Angeles Times, architects Jennifer Marmon and Tom Wiscombe, Undergraduate Chair at SCI-Arc and Linda Pollari, Chair at the OTIS College of Art and Design.
