The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum released this year's list of National Design Awards Thursday. Now in its 15th year, the program recognized 10 categories of design from architecture and fashion to landscape and product design. The public nominates candidates, who are then chosen by a jury.

Brooks + Scarpa took the Architecture Design category. Lead by principals Angela Brooks, FAIA, and Lawrence Scarpa, FAIA, the Los Angeles-based firm won a 2014 AIA Housing Award as well as a 2011 Residential Architect Design Award for Cherokee Studios. In an ARCHITECT interview last fall, Scarpa told Mimi Zeiger, "we'll do a doghouse if you let us do it well, so in that respect, almost anything fits into our philosophy."
