architect magazine award object – february 2011
For the second year in a row Architect magazine asked me to make the design for the award object of their famous progressive architecture award. Like any designer when you redo an object for the second time you try to improve de design make it simpler without changing it to much. The case was made differently from the first one, it was milled from a solid aluminium block with less screwed parts.
This objects try to bring a creative approche in a traditionaly useless object without changing it’s precious and significant weight, bright and size. It’s a different way to conceive an award, giving to it a playful and strong value.
The name of the edition and the prized architect or firm is engraved into to sliding cover of the box.
