Architects Seek to Plant Some Orchids and Onions


Tom Fudge: There are a lot of professional organizations that give awards to members of their tribes who do good work. Think of the Academy Awards or something like that. What makes San Diego's Orchids and Onions awards for architecture a little more interesting is the fact that they recognize both the best and the worst. The Onions are the booby prizes, and they are usually the most memorable. They get people worked up and, as we'll soon find out, they can have an impact on the way San Diego develops.



The Orchids and Onions winners will be announced on November 13th, 2008 at the Hall of Ch38ions in Balboa Park.
