Architects Grace La and James Dallman engage in projects of diverse scale and type, with particular interest in the relationship between site, culture, and construction. Noted for works that expand architecture’s agency in the civic recalibration of infrastructure as public space, the practice has been awarded numerous professional honors, architecture and engineering awards, and prizes in international design competitions. LA DALLMAN was named an Emerging Voice by the Architectural League of New York, received the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence Silver Medal, and is the first US practice to receive the Rice Design Alliance Prize, an international award recognizing exceptionally gifted architects in the early phase of their career. Projects include bridges, science exhibits, towers and houses. Current work includes an urban master plan and a collaborative center for dance and wellness. Their work investigates the balance between continuity and disruption, typological clarity and hybrid vigor.
