Venice-based firm Jerde Partnership—the architects that brought you the Santa Monica Place open-air shopping mall—was recognized this month in Dubai at the Cityscape Awards, a global contest that seeks out pioneering architectural projects.
The firm won two awards—one for "D-Cube City," a transit-oriented, mixed-use retail facility built last year in Seoul, South Korea; and the other for "Kuntsevo Centre," a mixed-use project in Moscow, Russia which is scheduled for completion in 2015.
Jerde Partnership's co-design director, Culver City resident David Rogers, was honored by the American Institute of Architects in May and named one of 105 fellows in the design category. Jerde celebrated 35 years on Tuesday.
