Jose Atienza serves as One Good Chair judge this week in Vegas

William McDonough + Partners’ designer Jose Atienza, Assoc. AIA, is in Las Vegas this week, where he is serving on a distinguished jury for the One Good Chair competition. This program is sponsored by the Sustainable Furnishings Council and run by architect/author Lance Hosey. This week, finalists will be announced as part of a panel discussion with the jury, which includes, in addition to Atienza, Toby Israel, Antonio Larosa, and Andrea Mangini (with Hosey moderating). The panel will be on Wednesday, August 4 at 4pm PDT at the World Market Center; it’s part of the Las Vegas Market. Three finalists will be funded to produce prototypes of their designs; those finalists will be juried in Las Vegas in January (as it happens, the firm’s director of communications, Kira Gould, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP, will serve on finalist jury).
