The Institute Honor Awards program recognizes achievements for a broad range of architectural activity in order to elevate the general quality of architectural practice, to establish a standard of excellence against which all architects can measure performance, and to inform the public expectations for architectural practice, its breadth, and its value.
They all deserve their own trips where you can travel to the unique destinations of each building that was honored. Here are our top 3 choices of what have been deemed The Coolest Buildings in America:
|Seattle King Street Station. Originally completed in 1906 and used for over 60 years by Great Northern and Northern Pacific Railways. |
Fun Fact: It was purchased by the City of Seattle for $10!
|The Los Angeles Holocaust Museum is free for everyone because founding survivors felt money shouldn't be a barrier to getting a part of crucial history.|
|Brooklyn Botanic Garden was formerly an ash dump and in 1897 was commissioned to be an urban garden for the growing borough to enjoy.|
