KSS Architects Wins Highest Honor Design Award From AIA New Jersey for Pennovation Center

April 26, 2018

AIA New Jersey recognizes KSS Architects with its highest Honor Design Award in the Category of Built – Preservation for the Pennovation Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Congratulations!

The jurors felt that this adaptive re-use is phenomenal.  Take an ordinary building and make something like this is remarkable.  Lighting works.  Gathering space as a ship’s prow is very powerful.  The sense of entry with the use of the A-frame adhering to the language of the loft building   Made use of the sculpture.  Far more subtle with an explosion.  Creates a common space.  Ambitious with an end.  Sign gesturing to the highway –monumental graphic.

 

AIA NJ Design Awards Chairman, Seth Leeb, AIA, and 2018 President Verity Frizzell, FAIA, presented KSS Architects Partner Pamela Rew, FAIA, with the Award.
