Honor Award

Architecture


The transformation of the Monterey Conference Center reinvigorates an economic driver for Monterey and restores the 40-year-old facility as a hub of activity in the heart of downtown. The building and new civic plaza facilitate connection—linking people and ideas, history and place, and a community to its future.

The jury was pleased that the original building was not torn down; instead, the project is transformative and turns a service area into a wonderful civic space. The approach shows restraint with texture and materials while breaking down the scale and inviting the outdoors into the exciting second floor logia, all while exercising thoughtfulness about the surrounding community. It is a success architecturally as well as urbanistically.
