The Federal Planning Division of the American Planning Association recently recognized The Urban Collaborative, with two national design awards. These awards reflect great credit on the firm’s commitment to collaborative and participatory processes as well as the firm’s focus on sustainability planning at all scales. A blind peer review jury led by distinguished faculty from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation selected the awards. The Urban Collaborative received the following awards this year:
Outstanding Area/Site Development Plan – Honor Award: Fort Polk Warrior Plaza Area Development Plan, Louisiana
Outstanding Collaborative Planning Project – Merit Award: NASA Johnson Space Center Master Plan Update, Texas & New Mexico
The competition included projects submitted by some of the largest architecture and planning firms in the country doing work for the U.S. federal government around the globe. A total of 14 projects were recognized in this year’s program. The Urban Collaborative team will be receiving their awards at the Federal Planning Division’s conference in New York City on May 4, 2017.
