AIA|LA is pleased to announce our special presenter for the ceremony:
BARBARA LAZAROFF: Restaurateur and interior designer Barbara Lazaroff, A.S.I.D., is renowned for her innovative restaurant concepts. As President of Imaginings Interior Design, Inc., Lazaroff created the original concept and design of the now legendary, Spago restaurant.
Barbara joins a panel of distinguished personalities that make the Restaurant Design Awards so successful, including our jurors Margot Dougherty (Food Writer), Warner Ebbink (Restaurateur) and George Kelly, AIA (Architect) who convened to review this year's entries and select the list of nominees.
Plan to also join us at Dwell on Design on Friday, June 21, 2013 for Behind Good Restaurant Design: A panel discussion with the Restaurant Design Awards Jury + Finalists. This discussion is an opportunity to hear what the nominees went through to produce a well-designed restaurant... AIA members can also earn 1.0 AIA learning units in the process!
And remember, you have until noon on Monday, June 17th to VOTE for the People's Choice Awards!
