We are honored to share that three of our projects received recognition at this year’s AIA St. Louis Design Awards Program. These awards celebrate our dedication to creating transformative designs that are thoughtful and authentic responses to our clients’ needs.
The Audubon Center at Riverlands received a Merit Award for Unbuilt Architecture. Located along the Mississippi flyway, this project features a thoughtful expansion to the existing bird conservation and visitor center. Additional education space including new indoor and outdoor classrooms connect people with birds and the Mississippi River ecology while also promoting diversity and inclusion in conservation.
New City School Classroom Renovation received an Honor Award for Unbuilt Architecture. In response to significant flooding in 2022, the school had a unique opportunity to re-imagine the pre-primary and kindergarten spaces while simultaneously safeguarding against future flood damage. The design for the new classrooms creates a varied, playful, and multi-sensory environment that engages the imaginations of the students.
The Forsyth Pointe Office Towers project received a Merit Award in the category of Craft for its unique parking garage screen. This new commercial office development spans the entire length of a city block and includes two high rise office towers connected by a single parking garage podium. Because of the significant urban presence of this parking garage, an engaging architectural envelope was essential to project success. Christner, along with Local fabricators from Troco and IWR, accepted the award for their work on this project.
Each of these projects was a collaborative effort with consultants, contractors, and owners. Thank you and congratulations to our talented team members and collaborators!
