The AIA voted yesterday to award Pugh + Scarpa Architects [1] the 2010 AIA Architecture Firm Award [2]. We’ve featured Pugh + Scarpa’s sustainable works before here [3] (Cherokee Lofts) and here [4] (Solar Homes) — so we were glad to hear that this Santa Monica-based architecture firm was being honored not only for their attention to sustainable design [5], but for their “excellent work, including its seamless blending of architecture, art, and craft; community involvement…and nurturing of in-house talent.” Take a peek at some of their incredible work here [6], or head on over to their website [7] for more.

Pugh + Scarpa Architects was founded in 1991 [8] by Gwynne Pugh, AIA, ASCE, LEED AP and Lawrence Scarpa, AIA — Angela Brooks, AIA, LEED AP became a principal in 2001. The firm has won 13 AIA awards over the past 10 years, including one for their solar umbrella home which we admired back in 2005 [4].

Congrats, Pugh + Scarpa!
