We were honored last night with an award from the Mississippi AIA for our 21st Street project in Brooklyn. Since we are new in town we feel really flattered to be recognized by our peers for this important accolade. I missed her lecture but was fortunate to sit next to Gail Vittori of the Center for Maximum Potential Buildings Systems www.cmpbs.org and hear her really insightful way of talking about the LEED system for buildings and that it should be thought of as a set of shared values for a project. Its something that we are working on with Little Building as well as our previous work in Brooklyn. Not all the choices we have made are as pure as we would have liked but we have weighted the consequences throughout. These are images of the 21st Street project shot by Paul Finkle.
