Project name: Shadow Play
Project location: Phoenix, Arizona
Firm name: Höweler + Yoon Architecture
Jury comments: Cited for Benches The large elements of this streetscape project are not particularly relatable at a human scale. The benches, however, are delightful. Fabricated with Corian surfaces and heat reflecting paint, they capture the essence of origami and provide shadow play much more successfully than the superstructure. They work here, and could work anywhere.
