Architect Christopher Haas wins AIA Merit Award for work in the ZERO1 Garage

It is our great honor to announce Christopher Haas, the architect and exhibition designer at the ZERO1 Garage, has won a Merit Award from the AIA San Francisco’s Design Awards Program for his exhibition design, Discovery (2012), featured during the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial “Seeking Silicon Valley”. The design is an open framework featuring meandering walls and non-classical spaces that evoke in visitors a sense of wonder, play, and discovery. AIA San Francisco’s Design Awards program recognizes outstanding achievements in architecture and design of Bay Area individuals and organizations, as well as celebrates architects and related professionals from afar who contribute to the framework of our local built environment. Based in San Francisco, Christopher Haas has worked with notables such as MH de Young Museum, Cirque du Soleil, and Fraenkel Gallery Annex. He was also the first architect ever to win the prestigious Isadora Duncan Dance Award for his collaborative piece with Alonzo King and Lines Ballet, “Triangle of the Squinches.”
