In 2007, LTL received a National Design Award from the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. In 2000, LTL was named one of 10 Selected Architects representing “The New Vanguard” by Architectural Record and, in 2004, the firm exhibited its work in the U.S. Pavilion of the Venice Architecture Biennale. In 2010, LTL was included in the exhibit “Rising Currents: Projects for New York’s Waterfront” at the Museum of Modern Art.
