NYC's Department of Design and Construction has selected LTL as one of 26 architecture firms to be pre-qualified to participate in the Design Excellence Program 2.0, to design public projects for the city through 2019.
LTL Architects is honored, along with Princeton Architectural Press, to be selected for one of ten Awards for the best Architectural Book of the year, from 88 publishers and 214 global entries. 2016 is the eighth time the Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) have bestowed the International DAM Architectural Book Award. The prize, the only one of its kind honors the best architectural books in a year. On September 28, 2016 a jury made up of external experts and representatives of DAM met to select the year’s ten best architectural books of the year. They based their decision on criteria such as design, content, quality of material and finishing, innovation, and topicality. All award-winning books will be presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair from October 20 to 23, 2016 (Hall 4.1, Zentrum Bild, stand K 109).
Marc Tsurumaki will present a selection of the firm’s recent work in relation to their research on the role of section in architecture, culminating in the publication of ‘Manual of Section.’ The lecture will address the history and potentials of section as a generative technique, focusing on it’s evolution from early modernism forward, and on sectional strategies as they are deployed in LTL’s built and speculative designs.
The Manual of Section exhibition at Ohio State University's Knowlton School opened on Wednesday October 5th, after a lecture given by Paul Lewis. The exhibition is up until November 4th.

After many years of work, Manual of Section is complete!
Published by Princeton Architectural Press, Manual of Section provides a conceptional and practical framework for understanding this key technique of architectural representation and design. In this forthcoming book, Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis have developed a new typology of section, demonstrated through sixty-three intricately detailed sectional perspectives of some of the most important buildings from the last hundred years.

LTL Architects and SCAPE Landscape Architecture have been selected to design the new facility for the Helen R. Walton Children's Enrichment Center (HWCEC) and Early Childhood Initiatives Center (ECIC) in Bentonville, AR. LTL was chosen from a pool of 36 pre-selected firms in the inaugural round of the Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program. LTL and SCAPE will work alongside local architects Hight Jackson, engineers Harrison French, and contractors East Harding to complete the Center. HWCEC directly serves over 240 children aged months-old to pre-K, and ECIC provides training facilities for professionals from nearly 500 early childhood programs throughout Northwest Arkansas. Designed from the ground up, this new project will be a model for the integration of architecture and landscape in a community-based educational facility for young children.
At this lecture, David will make the argument, through the recent work of LTL Architects, for an architecture of social intensification. At a time when digital technology and social media consumes more of our attention and time, segregated into self-selected niches and polarized crowds, architecture is in a unique position of reasserting physical and public space as a necessary stage for dialogue and engagement.

With construction underway on Upson Hall, the Cornell School of Engineering anticipates the new learning spaces that the renovation will provide. In addition to a completely new facade for the 60-year-old building, the redesign of Upson Hall will offer reconfigured offices and classrooms for increased exchange, an expanded Experiential Learning Lab, and hybrid engineering labs. The Upson Hall renovation was designed by the interdisciplinary team of LTL Architects, Perkins+Will, and Thornton Tomasetti.
