Carson Looney, FAIA, Principal of Looney Ricks Kiss Architects Receives Top Honors at Recent International Builders' Show[R].
Looney was one of only four architects selected to receive this high honor. Other honorees include Andres Duany (Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company), Millard Fuller (Founder of Habitat for Humanity), Nicolas Retsinas (Director of the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University.), Sarah Susanka (Susanka Studios and author of "The Not so Big House") and Alan Greenspan (Greenspan and Associates). In addition to the award and the subsequent profile that was included in the January issue of BUILDER Magazine (see www.builderonline.com), $200,000 is being donated to the Home Depot Foundation and Global Green USA in the groups' honor.
During the event, Looney was the first of eleven honorees inducted into the Best in American Living Awards (BALA) Inaugural Class of the Hall of Fame. Each professional was chosen by their significant impact in the residential design and construction fields through their involvement in BALA and their success in their professions.
"It is certainly an honor to be included on these lists," says Looney. "To be named among such industry pioneers and leaders speaks volumes about LRK's place in our industry- we could not have achieved this without the strong team that makes this firm succeed."
Based in Memphis, TN, Looney Ricks Kiss Architects has offices in Memphis and Nashville, TN; Princeton, NJ; Celebration, Rosemary Beach and Jacksonville, FL; Dallas, TX; Boulder, CO; Houston, TX and Baton Rouge, LA. The firm consists of approximately 150 professional architects, designers, planners and staff and has been recognized in the industry as one of the most respected full-service architecture, interiors, planning and urban design firms in the United States. www.lrk.com
