The principals of Evans Heintges Architects have entered significant architectural competitions during the past thirty-five years, winning recognition and awards in several. These include a First Prize Award in the San Francisco Embarcadero Waterfront Competition of 1993 and an Honorable Mention Citation in the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, of 1981.
Our solutions have attempted to see through the competition brief in order to understand the essence of the sponsorís goals. Our understanding of those goals and the spirit of the zeitgeist has led to both rigorously analytical proposals, such as our entry to the MassDensity Competition which sought new forms of sustainable suburban development, and whimsical interpretations of the sponsorís goals, such as our suggestion that a gigantic Trojan Horse would serve Melbourne well in its attempt to find a landmark as visually effective as Parisí Eiffel Tower.
Many of these studies have been published and exhibited internationally, including our entry in the Sunwall National Solar Design Competition, which received a Design Citation and was published by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2001.
