Member Spotlight | Gianna Pigford

Meet Gianna Pigford, project architect for the OUE Skyspace, located in Los Angeles and completed in 2016.

As project architect, Gianna assessed the project schedule and development timeline and assembled a team to focus on innovation, technology, and technical skillsets.

Several design elements were created, developed, and manufactured for the first time, including a lobby feature wall, electronic wall displays, a curved projection screen, and the exterior glass slide, all of which required intensive study, engineering, and iterative revisions before construction and installation.

The intentional play of light and shadow mimics the “golden hour,” which became the project’s design theme.

The completed project – a favorite venue of celebrities for private events and retreats – is often featured on social media.

Additional accolades were received from industry outlets with awards, mentions, and publications.
