AIA Honors Preservation of Historic CHORI Building (Nov 2001)

(Nov 2001) The renovation of Martin Luther King Jr Plaza was recently chosen for a Special Recognition design award by the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The CHORI design won in the category of renovation and adaptive reuse of an historic building. The AIA jury selected this project -- the restoration, renovation, and adaptive reuse of historic University High -- for its highly technical program design and sensitivity to historic features of the building. The award was presented in October to Dowler-Gruman Architects and CHORI at an awards dinner and ceremony at the San Jose Museum of Art. The award recipients are noted in the November 2001 issue of San Jose Magazine.
The AIA award is the third award received for the preservation of MLK Plaza. The project also received a Governor's Award of Excellence in Historic Preservation and an annual award of excellence from the Woodwork Institute of California.
