Last night we had celebrated the IIDA New England Awards at Space 57. The IIDA New England awards recognize the collaborative efforts required by project teams to produce excellent work. We are thrilled to announce both projects we entered earned awards in their categories.
The Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University received the award for Best Education Design and the Ipsen Research and Development Center received the award for Best Research Lab. Jury comments for the School of Public Health mentioned the project had “an excellent building to start with” and jurors were intrigued by the ways the materials and finishes complemented the innovative floor plates. In regards to the Ipsen research lab, the jurors felt the project provided the best in-between places for researchers – like the kitchen and Bamboo Garden.
We were thrilled to see all the great projects honored last night and enjoyed connecting with the IIDA New England community last night.
