Executive Director Julie Johnson was the recipient of this year’s Green Giants Award in recognition of her work to envision and fund the Hitchcock Center’s newly constructed living building. Selected by the Committee of the Environment (COTE) of the Western MA American Institute of Architects (WMAIA), Julie was selected from among 18 other nominations throughout the region for her leadership in developing the Center’s new 9,000 square foot environmental learning center, designed and built to the highest standard of sustainable development in the world through the Living Building Challenge.
The AIA Green Giants Award honors program is intentionally distinct from other building design awards in its attempt to look at and honor a wider range of participants behind the sustainable building movement in our region, not just architects or builders, but other trades people, educators or building owners/directors, who often are unsung heroes in this critical movement.
The Board and staff of the Hitchcock Center congratulate and thank Julie for her tireless work to bring our spectacular new home into reality, one that inspires and educates the next generation of environmental leaders.Click here to return to full list of blog entries.
