Judges Special Award of Excellence

The Foothills Animal Rescue/Brynne Smith Memorial Campus memorializes a spirited young lady with a special saying: 831: 8 Letters, 3 Words, 1 meaning - I Love You. The was the theme of her life, her Memorial Service and the Foothills Animal Rescue. The key word for this shelter is sustainability: sustain the existence of unfortunate animals, sustain in the Desert climate, and sustain the soul of a beautiful young spirit who cared about all things living and loving.

Board Formed Concrete, Rusted Steel and Rammed Earth plaster create a gritty, earthy presence that dissolve into the Mountain backdrop. Overhangs, shade sails, exterior dog yards and courtyard protect the shelter and inhabitants. The Memorial Lobby showcases adoptable pets and the Brynne’s story with custom flower petals lights mimicking her tattoos floating above.

A departure from what people think a shelter is, this is a lasting legacy of love.

Judges Special Award of Excellence

The ambitious endeavor to redevelop Jordan Downs, a challenged 100-acre public housing project built in the Watts community of Los Angeles in the 1940’s, into a revitalized mixed-income community merits a [judge’s special award.] When complete, this effort will rebuild 700 existing public housing units into approximately 1,375 new affordable housing units together with 100,000 square feet of new retail to serve the community and a 4.6-acre Central Park that includes a new Community Center. We look forward to seeing this project fully come to fruition.
