This year’s TSA Design Awards jury enjoyed cocktails, conversation, and cool architecture at the combined 2009 TSA Design Awards Jury Reception and Chuckwagon event held at the Charles Moore Foundation in Austin on May 8th.
Jurors, TSA Design Awards committee members, and TSA leaders experienced what Paul Goldberger once described as “mad magnificence,” the place that Charles Moore called home for the last 10 years of his life. Kevin Keim, director of the Charles Moore Foundation, led an informal tour of the compound for TSA guests, revealing anecdotes and stories along the way. Visit http://www.charlesmoore.org/where.html for more information on the design of the Moore/Andersson Compound.
Proceeds from the event benefit restoration and preservation projects at the Moore/Andersson Compound. This year’s funds will be devoted to the restoration of the Opium Den window in the Charles Moore House.
Thank you to the 2009 TSA Design Awards Jury Reception sponsor, Architectural Engineers Collaborative.
