We are delighted to announce that OJB has been recognized with 2022 Practice Award from The Architect’s Newspaper (AN). The juried award is conferred on exemplary practices in all aspects of design and delivery, culture and performance. Firms were invited to submit details of how they define the meaning of excellence, one which considers inclusivity, social impact, sustainability, regionality, and technological innovation, in addition to formal and structural considerations.
The distinguished jury of six professionals across a wide range of design practices, as well as editors of AN, selected three landscape architecture practices based on geographic location, as well as architectural practices based on geography and size. Jury member Trey Trahan, founder of the acclaimed design practice Trahan Architects noted,
“OJB excels at creating vibrant and active parks and landscapes. Their work invigorates the communities in which they build—leveraging ecology, play, and beautiful materiality to create spaces that become places.”
Our submission included a selection of completed projects and their design philosophy, as well as a profile of our operational benchmarks. Now in our 33rd year, OJB’s practice is united by the common goals to educate and inspire. Seeking an alternative pathway that is sustainable beyond a singular creative voice, OJB has built a shared platform for expression, focused on values and performance. We are honored to be among a wonderful group of design practices that we admire!
