The Steel Yard project wins ASLA Honor Award!

From the 2011 Professional Awards Jury:

“Sophisticated and visually rich. It truly broadens the definition on what can be beautiful. The landscape architects stayed true to its purpose. It feels so appropriate. Every sectional move is related to the ground conditions. It’s the next generation of Gasworks Park, it not only explains how they deal with post-industrial artifacts, but how they deal with sustainability. ”  http://www.asla.org/2011awards/183.html

BOOK – “SUPPORT AND RESIST” by Nina Rappaport

“Together Maltzan, Nordenson and project engineer Erik Nelson rethought the skin, designed instead a double layer of slotted perforated metal panels with larger rectangular openings.  The structural steel is

visible between the planes of wall.”  Maltzen says “As opposed to architecture leading decisions about the structure, it inverted halfway through the process and the structure led the development of the project.”
