And the Winner of the ABX 3D Model Competition Is…

Arrowstreet!
As we previously blogged, NRI hosted a 3D model contest at ABX. Our model was chosen as one of three finalists, and then the ultimate winner. Now we’re brainstorming how to use the $1,500 credit prize toward a 3D model of our choice.

Best of 2013 Awards

I recently attended the Banker & Tradesman ceremony honoring their Best of 2013 awards recipients. Arrowstreet was voted Gold this year in an open poll among B&T’s readers in the Architect / Design category. It was a nice evening, with a great venue – Sean, Amy, and I enjoyed views across the Charles River to downtown Boston.

KIPP Academy Lynn Wins BBJ Award

It was announced today that Arrowstreet’s KIPP Academy Lynn project was awarded the 2013 Boston Business Journal’s Best in Boston Real Estate Award for “Community Impact.”

The award is recognition of the fantastic impact that the KIPP program has had on the lives of its students and their families.  The new facility has allowed the KIPP program to expand their middle school program and extend the experience for their students through high school, with both the middle and high schools being combined in the new building.

Congratulations to the entire project team!

AFH Canopy Wins Best Installation Contest

Artists for Humanity has a new entry canopy, which has just won an award from 3-Form. The original design of the building included structural points of support, but at the time of its construction there was not enough funding to build a canopy. Now, just in time for their 20th anniversary, they’ve got one, funded by the Brown Fund and design/built by the AFH students, under guidance by a group of MassArt students taught by Sam Batchelor. Pat Cornelison and I helped in the design charrettes and supported the project in various other ways.
