Three chapters of the Structural Engineers Association—in Illinois (SEAOI), New York (SEAoNY) and Northern California (SEAONC)—presented SOM with awards that recognize outstanding achievement and innovation in structural engineering.
Janet Echelman's sculpture"Dream Catcher" has been honored in the 2018 CODAawards, which recognize outstanding collaborations between architects and artists. SOM worked with Echelman to create the large-scale net sculpture, suspended above a public plaza at The Jeremy Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
TED Ideas spotlights sculptor Janet Echelman. SOM collaborated with Echelman on "Dream Catcher," an installation at The Jeremy Hotel in California, and a test study of the sculpture created for SOM's traveling exhibition on the intersection of art, engineering, and architecture.
On May 24th, 2018, SOM architects will lead a tour of The Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood, California for the American Institute of Architects and the public. The boutique hotel, located on the iconic Sunset Strip, includes an exterior art installation by Janet Echelman.
