Best of Year

2018 Hall of Fame Inductee: Patrick Tighe

"We’ve been publishing Patrick from his early career beginning and seen his growth across residential, commercial, mixed-use, retail, cultural, and installation projects! A West Coast boy at heart, he has defined the California modern vernacular. He studied with the greats (Frank Gehry AND Thom Mayne at Morphosis), implementing their ideologies with his own team in his practice, giving them the freedom to experiment on every kind of project. He is a big talent who uses INNOVATION as an integral part of the practice! On top of this, he has been expanding into more community work and projects with a strong social conscience and an awareness for helping others through design, such as an apartment complex for the homeless and LGBT as well as a playground on the beach in Malibu that is universally accessible. I am truly honored to be welcoming Patrick Tighe into the Hall of Fame on November 29th, 2018."
