Hagy Belzberg's tenacious advocacy for his projects and clients transcends typology and has resulted in a diverse portfolio of award-winning, built work. His approach to design is driven by investigation, particularly of non-traditional construction methods, and often through the use of digital fabrication. He continually provides a fresh perspective, questioning conventions and applying innovative solutions to each challenge.

Belzberg received his Masters of Architecture with Distinction from Harvard UniversityGraduate School of Design. He has been awarded the American Institute of Architects California Council “Emerging Talent Award”, and received the prestigious “Emerging Voice” Award from the Architectural League of New York in 2008. In 2010, Belzberg was elected to The College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects. In 2014, he was invited to exhibit his work at MOCA's "A New Sculpturalism, Contemporary Architecture from Southern California".

His firm, Belzberg Architects, has earned over 70 international, national and local design awards including over 19 from the American Institute of Architects. His work has been featured in over 200 publications throughout more than 25 countries including frequent features in notable periodicals such as Architectural Record, Interior Design, the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.  In addition, Belzberg has been honored with the A.I.A. Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Committee Design Honor Award and the Green Building Award from the Mayor of Los Angeles.  The Urban Land Institute recognized his design work and contribution to excellence in urban planning. The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture recognized several of his projects with the American Architecture Award.  In 2007, the Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture, Canada featured his work at the Expanding Bodies Conference which focused on “digital sensing and interactive and responsive systems.”
