UCLA architecture faculty Mohamed Sharif, Todd Lynch, Kevin Daly and Georgina Huljich were recently honored by the American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles for their work.

The awards honor design excellence by noting some of the most significant completed projects in the country at this time. The Design Award is given in three classifications: Honor, Merit and Citation. Sharif and Lynch won a Citation award for their work on the Mar Vista House Addition and Renovation and Daly was similarly honored for his work on the Evelyn and Mo Ostin Music Center at the UCLA Herb Alpert School. Huljich was recognized with a Citation award for her work on the A4H Office Building in Glendale, California.

The institute is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to furthering the efforts of its parent organization, the American Institute of Architects, by specifically serving the interests of its local architecture and design community in and around Los Angeles.
