“Describing complex mathematical impossibilities of architectural and artistic form with lyrical grace and a lightness of being, all while mentoring and empowering the collective consciousness of the studio: these are the characteristics of Best of Practice for a structural engineering firm. LERA’s breadth of impact, both within practice, within discipline, and within a portfolio of excellence elevated their submission to worthy recognition.” —David Rubin
