SPURLOCK POIRIER Projects Win Prestigious Orchid Awards
Two SPURLOCK POIRIER Landscape Architects projects – “Fallen Star” at UC San Diego and the U.S. Federal Courthouse Building in San Diego – have won Orchid Awards, with the former receiving the highest honor, the “Grand Orchid.”
The San Diego Architectural Foundation’s Orchids & Onions Awards are a San Diego tradition, going back nearly 40 years, to single out the best and worst of architecture, landscape architecture, public art and other design categories, starting with nominations from the public. “Orchids” represent the best in local architecture.
Working with artist Do Ho Suh to create the 18th permanent sculpture of UC San Diego’s Stuart Collection – “Fallen Star” – SPURLOCK POIRIER Landscape Architects designed a low maintenance, New England-style cottage garden that hangs off the side of the 7th floor roof of the Jacobs Engineering building.
Another one of the firm’s projects – the U.S. Federal Courthouse, located in San Diego’s urban development zone – also won an Orchid.
