Every year the AIA/LA, or the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects, holds its annual Restaurant Design Awards, a competition which honors excellence in design for restaurants, nightclubs, cafes, bars, and lounges. In order to quality, the venue must be located in LA or the designers must have an office in LA. Out now are the 16 finalists for 2013, as determined by judges Margot Dougherty (writer), Warner Ebbink (restaurateur), and George Kelly (architect). Which means that voting is now open to the public until noon on June 17 to decide the People's Choice Award. Winners will be announced on June 22 at Dwell on Design.
