BATON ROUGE - The New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA-NJ) has recognized ikon.5 Architects of Princeton with a merit award in the built open category in recognition of its work on the E. J. Ourso College of Business.

Architects designed the project as a glass and steel academic village with the goal of expressing forward-thinking business education for the post-Katrina Gulf South. The design team constructed the building with contemporary materials including artistic, ceramic-coated mirror glass and a bronze solar screen covering the project's rotunda. The courtyard plan and building forms are contextual, recalling the sloped roof pavilions and arcaded courtyards of the adjacent 89-year-old campus, while the innovative glass technology communicates as a forward-looking enterprise.
