SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (January 12, 2012) – The results are in, and the Massachusetts Maritime Academy installation by Perry Dean Rogers | Partners Architects has been named the winner of 3form’s 6th Annual People’s Choice Installation Contest.

In the Interiors category, Growing Smiles Pediatric Dentistry by CIVITAS Architects earned first place. The designers used Varia Ecoresin and Struttura to create a forest environment that is bright, playful and enjoyable for children.
