The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) honored 18 projects at its biennial Design Awards ceremony at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., last week. Los Angeles-based architect Mehrdad Yazdani chaired a jury of private design, construction, and art professionals that reviewed more than 80 projects for this cycle of GSA’s Design Awards. The submissions spanned 13 categories, including architecture, preservation, engineering, sustainability, interior design, art, urban design, and construction.

“These projects represent the best of the best of GSA’s work for its federal agency customers and the American people,” said Paul Prouty, acting administrator of GSA. “They embody GSA’s goals to create superior workplaces, develop creative solutions, and implement cost-effective acquisition services and management policies.”
