Georgina Huljich is co-principal of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, a design research architectural practice based in Los Angeles. P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S gained international recognition for its subtle approach to architecture, one that seamlessly integrates digital technology within an extensive consideration of form, novel tectonics and innovative materials. With a decidedly global influence and working across multiple scales, programs and cultures, P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S completed projects in the US, South America and Asia. Their work was exhibited and published worldwide and is part of the permanent collections of SF MOMA, Chicago Art Institute and Vienna MAK Museum.
P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S received numerous prizes and awards including two AIA LA Honor Awards, an AIA National Design Review Honorific Mention; first prizes in the competitions for the SCI-Arc Graduation Pavilion, a Temporary Pavilion for MOCA, the Vertical Garden at the Schindler House, the New SCI_Arc Café and the third prize in the prestigious Young Architect of the Year Award. Most recently, the office was finalist for the Ordos Prize and the Iakov Chernikov Prize. In 2011, P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S integrated the Emerging Voices Series of the Architectural league of New York, and was the recipient of the Arch is Award by the AIA LA Chapter. In 2013, Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich were the recipients of the prestigious United States Artists Fellowship. Their first comprehensive monograph entitled “Embedded” was published last year by ACDCU Beijing.
Georgina has previously worked for the Guggenheim Museum, the architectural firm Dean/Wolf architects in New York, and as a project designer at Morphosis in Los Angeles. She was the 2005-2006 Maybeck Fellow at UC Berkeley.
Both architect and educator, Georgina Huljich is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA.
