AIA Columbus Merit Award
The MicroTower Parking Booth is the recipient of the AIA Columbus Merit Award! The booth is part of Bold Booths, a public art program in downtown Columbus that reimagines the parking booth, an overlooked occupant of the most banal of urban landscapes, as a disruptive artifact, both art and architecture, curious and exuberant. The MicroTower re-creates the parking booth as a new tower on the city's skyline, realized at a scale both tall and small, its proportions and minimal, monolithic nature mimicking the office towers that surround it. The ambiguity of its perceived scale produces a surreal presence. Nevertheless, at 40' in height, it assumes the role of both urban landmark and sign for the business of urban parking.

"This project incited all sorts of comments and theories, once we realized the creative genius of using an existing shipping container, putting on its end and reinbahiting as a form of public art we were all entranced. Despite its incredibly low budget this project has a great pop art potential for connecting some of the less inhabited parts of town that are inhabited by cars."

AIA Columbus Honor Award
The View on Grant is the recipient of an AIA Columbus Honor Award! The View on Grant is an urban, mixed-use residential project in a recently resurgent neighborhood of downtown Columbus with warehouse conversions and 2 college campuses. The project includes the adaptive reuse of an existing 5 story cast-in-place concrete and masonry structure (ca. 1902) with a 3 story, cantilevered rooftop addition and a 5-story north extension. The new use includes 86 market-rate apartments with indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, including a public coffee shop in the resident lobby and a semiautomated mechanical parking system. The rooftop addition is constructed of light gage metal framing above a structural steel transfer floor. Read more about the project here.
"Another successful project that ties the old and the new. Such a strong addition to the downtown skyline we especially appreciated the clean cut addition to the existing warehouse. The thoughtful hospitality spaces were also noted. Signs of active life throughout upstairs found nicely courtyard color to separate old and new."
