Let's Celebrate New Beginnings JANUARY OF THE NEW YEAR HAS ARRIVED AND WITH IT PLANS FOR HONORING RESOLUTIONS. I don't know about you, but I don't always find that I follow through with my good intentions. There is one young lady who is very determined to follow through with hers. That person is Huntington Beach resident and star surfer Courtney Conlogue, whose

love of the sport and her competitive spirit keeps her on overdrive in an effort to win titles. Right now she's battling it out at the World Surfing League's final world title race in Maui. However it turns out, we know that Conlogue will be back for more. The American Institute of Architects has a healthy presence in Orange County, as you will find in reading our feature story. Led by chapter president Brett Dougherty, the organization heads a student design competition, participates in the annual Design Awards and has a presence in the local Art Walks. Further, the group is committed to finding solutions to the demographical inflow in Orange County and, consequently, the future demand for housing. Dougherty defines the three main OC issues to be affordability, availability and responsibility. The 2017 winners of the Design Awards were honored for their innovative solutions to those issues.   If you're thinking about visiting our nation's capital in the near future, you will enjoy our travel

SINCE 2011, AIA ORANGE COUNTY (AIAOC) CHAPTER PRESIDENT BRETT DOUGHERTY HAS LED THE STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION, AND PARTICIPATED IN THE 2017 DESIGN AWARDS AND ART WALK COMMITTEES. Dougherty is also a director on the AIA California Council Board of Directors, as well as the California Architecture Foundation Board of Directors. Here in Orange County, Daugherty is not only in charge of implementing AIA’s core values, but is also responsible for finding solutions to the OC demographical inflow, (a 5.4% increase from 2010 to 2016, according to the US census bureau), and, consequently, the future demand for housing. As a natural facilitator and problem-solver, Daugherty is ready to help develop new policies that generate better, stronger and a more equitable and sustainable community. He defines the three main OC issues to be affordability, availability and responsibility.

Newport Beach Lifestyle | January 2018


Chapter Presdeint Brett Dougherty

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) was originally founded in 1857 by 13 architects. Since its inception, the organization has grown considerably with more than 90,000 members, and 260 chapters around the world. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., AIA advocates for the value of architecture and the power of design. The organization provides architects with resources that allow them to excel in their work. Some examples are: a core of values grounded on climate change, immigration, infrastructure, sustainability, fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement of all individuals.

“To solve these issues, we need first-rate coordination and partnership with all municipal bodies. Making sure the city and county level are aligned, is key,” says Daugherty. “Currently, there is no specific action plan, but one should be drafted and implemented in the same way other cities like San Diego or San Francisco have done.” He believes that architects should be much more involved in the urban discussions. All AIAOC members are committed to engage in the policy-making process and to focus the power of design on solving all these challenges facing the Orange County community. The organization offers architects learning opportunities, such as lectures, tours and outreach to the community through the organization of design-based competitions. Last September, AIAOC announced the award winners of its signature event, The Design Awards. The awards honor innovative solutions to the architectural challenges facing Orange County, regardless of project category, type, or budget. All architectural projects were evaluated and judged by a jury of industry leaders. The winners were those who provided an advance in the built environment and the visual landscape of the county in the commercial and residential categories. There are three different awards per category: Honor, Merit and Citation. Some of the iconic OC awarded buildings are: Yazdani Studio of Cannon Design for its Kaiser Kraemer Radiation Oncology Center;

Studio PCH's award-winning interior design for Nobu Newport Beach

LPA, Inc. for the California State University, East Bay, Student and Faculty Support Center, the Orange Coast College Interdisciplinary Classroom Buildings, Culinary Arts Academy and District Office, for The Atrium at Edwards Life Sciences and the Volcom Headquarters. Awards also went to Studio PCH for Nobu Newport Beach; Berliner for its Magnolia Science Academy in Santa Ana; both Shubin Donaldson and Lionakis with projects outside OC; and to KTGY the Inspire Award for its Park House project consisting of 357 shipping containers that create 119 residential units.

LPA President Dan Heinfeld

One of the main Design Awards recipients this year was LPA, Inc. The firm is one of the largest architectural, planning, landscape, engineering, and interior design firms in the country. Directed and inspired by its president Dan Heinfeld, the firm has focused on a multidisciplinary team and client collaboration working method, in addition to an integrated sustainable model that enables them to work holistically to create projects that do more with less…more design and fewer resources. By following these guidelines, the firm has defined a model for the future. LPA has been an active member of AIAOC since 1965, with three members in the chapter: Dan Heinfeld (President), Glenn Carels

ON THE ROAD TO

No.1 CURRENTLY RANKED #3 IN THE WORLD, SANTA ANA NATIVE COURTNEY CONLOGUE CALLS HUNTINGTON BEACH HER SECOND HOME.

“I spend as much time there as I do at my house,” says Conlogue, excitedly. Since age four, Conlogue can remember that weekends were made for family togetherness at the beach getting sun-kissed, sandy and surfing until dusk. “Going to the beach was a family ordeal. We would go on the weekends and spend the whole day there. That was our way of bonding,” she reminisces. Around age five, Conlogue recalls her father, Richard, walking her down the Huntington Beach Pier. He showed her the infamous Northside, a popular break for many locals, and told her that one day she would be able to surf there. A few short months later, Conlogue surfed that break and began her journey without ever turning back. Too young to really grasp surf competitions and without family pressure pushing her to compete, Conlogue kept on surfing and gaining strength and confidence. In 2004, she entered her first surf competition, a Hello Kitty Board Fest at ARTICLE DIANA KRUPA

Huntington’s Taco Bell Reef. Winning a small prize purse, she bought a puppy and named him Drako. Conlogue, still not focused on competing, kept on surfing with no care in the world except for her family, school and her new puppy. Around age nine, Mike Doheny, a locally-known surfer, suggested to her family that they enter Conlogue into NSSA (National Scholastic Surfing Association) competitions. Once they agreed, she found herself in the finals competing against boys who today are top-ranked surfers and on the World Surfing League (WSL) Champions Tour. The rest, as they say, is history.

ON THE ROAD TO NO. 1

(CON TI N U ED)

“I WANTED TO SHOW WOMEN’S SURFING AS At the time of this writing, the 2017 WSL’s women's world title race is one of the closest in history, with five of the sport's biggest names still very much in the mix heading into the final event of the season (Maui Women’s Pro). Sally Fitzgibbons is clinging to a razor-thin lead over Tyler Wright, with Conlogue right on their heels in third place. Conlogue is in her seventh year on tour. She is focused and stronger than ever with her only challenge not having enough hours in the day. “A world title is my priority, and I am looking forward to winning it,” says Conlogue with her inner “Sea Tiger” voice, a nickname she was given at age four. “I am very competitive. My surfing style is like a tiger in the heat,” she giggles.

STRONG, BEAUTIFUL AND GRACEFUL. I BELIEVE THAT STRENGTH IS BEAUTY,” SAYS CONLOGUE ABOUT THE VULNERABILITY SHE HAD OVERCOME TO TAKE PART IN THIS SPECIAL ISSUE. “I BELIEVE IN BEING YOUR AUTHENTIC TRUE SELF.” Throughout her career, Conlogue has had plenty of sponsors.

After the final tour event in Hawaii, we suspect upon her return home, she will hit Huntington Beach for some waves, a meal at Bear Flag Fish Co.

FORGET POLITICS–JUST FOR A MOMENT–AND DELVE INTO THE WASHINGTON, D.C. THAT BELONGS TO ALL OF US

A

TIGHTLY PACKED TOWN WITH A POPULATION OF ABOUT 600,000, IT IS WEDGED BETWEEN MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA. From its beginnings, it has always rolled out the welcome mat to people from around the country and the world. Because of the influx of energy of this power hub, the world’s capital is one of the most dynamic places on earth. Washington is one of those rare cities that you never really “know.” Capture it once and it moves on again. It’s always evolving–from food trucks to pop-up shops, from newly minted cycling lanes to the latest museum (most recently, the opening of the National

Museum of African American History and Culture). Of course, D.C. has many world-class museums filled with extraordinary

treasures (Declaration of Independence, anyone?). There’s the Air & Space Museum with Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis and the National Gallery of Art with works by da Vinci and other masters. The National Museum of the American Indian is a testament to this country’s first civilization and just happens to have the best museum cafeteria. (Tip: Try the plank-smoked salmon at the Pacific Northwest kiosk.). One of the city’s most powerful museums is the United States Holocaust Museum, where each visitor is assigned an identity so the exhibits become visceral experiences. The Renwick Gallery, dedicated to American craftspeople, invites visitor to lie down on the floor and contemplate the expansive ceiling art. And, the hands-on International Spy Museum focuses on spies through the ages from Mata Hari to 21st century espionage agents. D.C.’s wide boulevards and sturdy buildings give an air of gravitas to this city, but it also has an authentic thread of fun running through it. To tap into the lighter side, head to the Adams Morgan neighborhood, where graffiti-imprinted walls set the stage for art galleries and indie bookshops, such as Idle Time Books prized for its rare books. Spend an afternoon at Union Market, where locals burrow in to sample sashimi, empanadas and Korean BBQ from artisanal purveyors, before shopping for small-batch soap and retro-chic aprons at Salt & Sundry. Culinary competition is steep, so you can count on eating well. A few standouts include Masseria, an ode to the chef’s Puglia ancestry that renders homemade orecchiette tossed with rapini and tomatoes; Le Desales, where chef Rafael Francois, who hails from Le Cirque in New York, delivers high notes even in the appetizer round, like a done-right country duck pate; and Jose Andres’ original Jaleo, which upholds it reputation, thanks to reliable tapas like the classic gambas al ajillos or garlic shrimp.

The sheer number of hotels makes D.C. a great place to bed down. Among the best with a political bent: The Watergate– yup that one–offers a nod to its infamous Nixonian past with

2

Instagram-worthy details that echo its iconic shape, including spherical lamps and conical planters. Head to the rooftop for a 360-view of the city and the Potomac. Two blocks from the White House stands the imposing Willard Intercontinental, a power center for the nation’s capital since 1850. Here, linger in the marble-clad lobby to people watch, book a room overlooking the Washington Monument and sip a signature mint julep inside the iconic Round Robin bar off the lobby. Despite its solid history, it is in a near constant state of renewal. And, that’s precisely what makes it an exciting place to visit time and time again. So, next time someone brings up D.C. and says, “I don’t want to talk about politics” you can say, as locals do, “No problem…Washington, D.C. has got plenty else to talk about.”

CHEFS FLORENT AND AMELIA MARNEAU START ANEW IN NEWPORT

WHEN MARCHÈ MODERNE QUIETLY SHUTTERED AT SOUTH COAST PLAZA MORE THAN THREE YEARS AGO, EVERYONE ADMITTED TO HAVING A DISH THAT THEY WOULD MISS. Some spoke of decadent plates such as Chef Florent Marneau’s roasted bone marrow that spread like butter across grilled slices of toasty baguette. Others languished about his divinely simple succulent chicken with creamy whipped potatoes. The buttery flavor transported you back to your grandma’s country kitchen– even if your Nana didn’t live in the country or step foot in a kitchen. Then, there were Amelia’s desserts. Macarons and creamy custard-filled Napoleons. Confections that sometimes outshone her husband’s savory efforts. That was the thrill of Marchè Moderne. The cooking transcended its location. You never felt as if you were eating in a shopping cen-

M o v e s

ter, let alone one in Orange County. The service and the food felt more like Cannes than Costa Mesa. The Marneaus capitalized on their unique talents in the kitchen. But, Florent and Amelia needed a new beginning. They closed their South Coast Plaza perch and opened a new space last summer. The restaurant in Newport Beach is elegant but not stuffy. It’s homey and comforting, with odes to the French countryside and Paris’ refined bistros. Here, the chefs helm the kitchen and exhibit a few techniques reminiscent of The Ritz in Paris. An opening night soirée felt like the couple’s own housewarming party. The chefs Marneau welcomed family, friends and VIPs for a sneak peek at the restaurant. Several loyal fans rejoiced that they didn’t forget the classic favorites: Charcuterie freshly sliced with a variety of cheeses and seasonal accoutrements. A soft egg custard served warm in-shell with seared foie gras and a whisper of truffle oil delighted guests, while freshly shucked oysters and bubbly Champagne signaled that the couple is back and ready to party. While the dishes continue to remain well executed and refined, there is still one hitch: no lunch service. At the old location, an afternoon lunch would serendipitously linger for hours. That was another charming element of Marchè Moderne. I will miss that. However, I’m looking forward to the Marneau’s next chapter.
