RDG Planning & Design has been recognized with an Architizer A+Award, a program that honors the best architecture and spaces worldwide.

Architizer, a leading online platform for architecture, announced the winners of the 12th Annual Architizer A+Awards. This year, Architizer received unprecedented submissions, which were reviewed by the jury and the global public. The latest collection of winners reflects a collective desire to regenerate, reuse, rethink, reinvent or reimagine architecture and spaces, forming a positive precedent for the next generation.

Architizer’s A+Awards spotlights the work of architects and designers who are not content with the status quo. This year’s program celebrates creative courage, highlighting the extraordinary ability of architects to respond to clients’ changing needs, our growing climate crisis, and the rapid evolution of technology. RDG’s Lake Como Park Pavilion was recognized as the Popular Choice Winner in the Pavillions category.

Inspired by Lake Como Park's natural beauty and rich history, the Lake Como Park Pavillion public art installation honors local community leaders and celebrates the community. At its center, a weathering steel sculpture acts as a literal and figurative frame for the community. The ‘gap’ in the frame, bridged by the recognition of community leaders, shines a light on work that’s been accomplished while also suggesting there is more to do. The pavilion is an original artwork commissioned by and included in the public art collection of the City of Fort Worth, Texas.
