LTL Architects win 2010 Lawrence Israel Prize

The Interior Design Department at Fashion Institute of Technology/State University of New York recently honored LTL Architects with the 2010 Lawrence Israel Prize, which recognizes the best and the brightest for their contributions in the field of interior design.

Lewis Tsurumaki Lewis is an award-winning partnership founded in 1997 by Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurumaki and David J. Lewis in New York City. The firm has won a Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Interior Architecture and a James Beard Award for Outstanding Restaurant Design. They have been featured in the U.S. Pavilion at the 2004 Venice Architecture Biennale and cited by Architectural Record as one of 10 firms representing a ‘Vanguard in Contemporary Architecture’. LTL’s current projects include ‘Arthouse’, a contemporary art museum nearing completion in Austin, Texas and a new facility for the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis at New York University. LTL is also featured at the Museum of Modern Art’s “Rising Currents: Projects for New York’s Waterfront,” an exhibition exploring the effects of global warming in New York.

More than a decade ago Lawrence Israel endowed this prize at FIT/SUNY with the intent to expose students to the best and brightest… whose sharing of ideas and experiences would broaden and enrich their course of study.

Members of LTL will also give the Lawrence J. Israel Prize Lecture, titled “Opportunistic Play,” on Friday, 16 April at 6 p.m. in the Katie Murphy Auditorium of the Fashion Institute of Technology. Entry will be through the D Building on the Northwest corner of Seventh Avenue and 27 Street. No reservations required, admission is free and open to the public.
