New San Diego Architecture Up For Orchids And Onions Nominations

We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available. A transcript has been made available.

How To Participate

Nominations for the Orchids & Onions will be accepted until 12:01 a.m. on Aug. 1.

You might not know much about architecture, but you probably know the buildings you like and the buildings you don't.

For the next few days, you have a chance to put in nominations for your favorite, and least favorite new buildings for the annual Orchids & Onions awards.

The categories range from architecture to landscape, interior design and historic preservation.

The awards are given out by the San Diego Architectural Foundation in the hope that it will make people more aware of the built environment around them.

Last year, everything from a modern art sculpture to an emergency generator were included in the awards.

CORRECTION: Perriann Hodges was incorrectly identified as an architect. She's currently working toward becoming a licensed architect. KPBS regret the error.
