TK Pad establishes the first residential construction using the firm’s patented seismically stable rammed earth construction. Perched on a hillside overlooking the Snake River, the 3,000 square-foot energy-efficient home blends easily into its surroundings, incorporating materials mined from the site along with gravel pit by-products. AIA Wyoming presents its design awards every three years, recognizing excellence in the design, planning and construction of projects located anywhere in the world that are designed by AIA architects registered and licensed in Wyoming. The program honors the highest design standards in response to user requirements, site, context, climate and environment. Each entry – regardless of size of classification – is judged individually on the basis of total design merit.
