The designs from our Chicago studio received high recognition in this year’s AIA Chicago Design Excellence Awards across all three categories. The annual award program honors originality and execution of design by Chicago architecture firms as well as Chicago-based projects by national and international firms.
Our own Jessica Figenholtz, AIA Chicago Board of Directors First Vice President/President-Elect, offered some reflections on 2020. “What we’ve learned this year is that coming together doesn’t mean tightening your circles. Coming together in crisis often looks like opening: to new people, new ideas, new ways of working together, and collaborating toward common goals… I have found, within myself and many of the designers that I work with, a new sense of resilience that has resulted from opening ourselves up to each other and to our neighbors.”
