On Thursday, July 23, at 3 p.m., our own Eddie Jones will join the AIA Phoenix Metro’s virtual Slide Slam and Honor Awards Debrief to present on our Prairie Raptor Residence, awarded an AIA Arizona Honor Award last year.
An homage to architect Herb Greene’s Prairie Chicken house outside Norman, Oklahoma, the Prairie Raptor House is located just twenty miles to the south.
The house was not designed merely for humans, however. If anything, they are subordinate to the carnivorous felines that roam inside. Simba, Nala and Samson, three African Serval cats, perch atop the transparent loft–an ideal elevated, defensible position to observe entering guests as potential “fresh meat.”
Other presenting honorees include Jack DeBartolo 3, FAIA; Mark Kranz, FAIA and Alison Rainey, AIA for a conversation about their 2019 AIA Arizona Honor Award-winning projects.
