2023 Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest Winners

We’re thrilled to share this news: Architectural Record has named MG2’s Shin Lopez a Runner-Up in their annual Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest.

In 2018, The Grand Hotel Apartments in Yakima, WA caught her attention, and she’s never forgotten them. “Ever since I can remember, I’ve found buildings to be quite beautiful, and very often, when I walk by a building that I fall for, I can’t stop thinking about it. The windows I drew for my submission are similar to The Grand Hotel Apartments’; I couldn’t stop thinking about them six years later!”
