The 2016 panel of judges for the Houston PaperCity Design Awards are: Connecticut and New York-based architect Roger Ferris, Los Angeles- based designer Suzanne Rheinstein; New York-based designer Vicente Wolf; and San Antonio-based architect Vicki Yuan, senior associate, Lake/Flato. Designer Suzanne Rheinstein is known for her fresh and elegant traditional style. Her L.A. shop, Hollyhock, is a beloved resource for designers; her fabric and rug collection for Lee Jofa is under the same name. She's a member of the Architectural Digest AD 100 list, and Rizzoli has released her second book, Rooms for Living. Rheinstein will speak and sign books Tuesday, April 12, at Houston Design Center Spring Market. Vicente Wolf's impressive portfolio spans projects from residential to hotels and restaurants worldwide, and he partners with numerous international luxury brands to design products. His fourth book, The Four Elements of Design, releases in April through Rizzoli. Wolf is a member of the Architectural Digest AD 100 list and was named one of the 10 most influential designers in the U.S. by House Beautiful. Wolf will also speak and sign books Tuesday, April 12, at Houston Design Center Spring Market. Roger Ferris launched his celebrated architecture career after graduating from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design, where he was a Loeb Fellow. His firm, Roger Ferris and Partners, founded in 1986, has won more than 70 awards and international citations and offers architecture, interior design, master planning, product and furniture design, and graphic design for residential and commercial projects. A book about the firm's work, Inventive Minimalism: Architecture by Roger Ferris + Partners by William S. Saunders, will be released in June by The Monacelli Press. Vicki Yuan, an associate for 10 years at the award-winning architecture firm Lake/Flato, specializes in high-end residential and hospitality projects. Lake/Flato, created by Ted Flato and David Lake in 1984, believes that architecture should be rooted in its particular place, and the firm is known for using local materials and craftsmen to create tactile and modern, environmentally responsible and artful structures. Their work has been honored by more than 200 awards, and Lake/Flato was recently named to the Architectural Digest AD 100 list. Along with numerous residential projects, the team also created the AT&T Center Spurs Arena and the San Antonio Children's DoSeum. Anne Lee Phillips Submit your Houston PaperCity Design Awards entries by Thursday, March 10, at A s our announcement ad says, it was bound to happen. After 22 years, PaperCity Houston and Dallas will be perfect bound, beginning with the September issue. When I began PaperCity all those years ago, W magazine had recently transitioned from a large format, as PaperCity is doing now, into perfect bound. W magazine came out twice a month and was filled with a wonderful cocktail party of people, social, fashion, art and design. I mourned the loss of this oversized lively mix and patterned PaperCity after it. As a few of you may remember, the name for the first few years was The Paper, but the moniker was not able to be copyrighted, so we transitioned into PaperCity. In this new bound iteration, the paper stock was of utmost concern, and with the help of our magnanimous and patient printer, Trend Offset, we have secured a perfectly lovely heavy paper for the cover and a substantial interior paper that feel modern and luxurious. Next step was to inform national and local advertisers. Publisher Monica Bickers, style editor Francine Ballard and I flew to New York to meet with current advertisers — Hermès, Cartier, Chanel, Tom Ford, Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana and many more — to present the mock-up and begin the long negotiations over ad placement, the joy (that they are running ads) and the bane (who is before whom in the magazine) of all publishers. Each and every fashion and jewelry house we met with was thrilled about the change and secured double-page ad spreads for the September launch issue. We hope you will also be thrilled with the new physical format, as well as the increased number of pages in each issue for more design, art, fashion, social, food and travel. Until then, I'll savor the end of an era and reflect on the many ways for which the broadsheet pages of PaperCity will no longer be useful: gift wrapping, table coverings, art installation, dress making, wallpaper — all imaginative applications by our readers.
