November 21, 2017


JSA’s UPenn ICA Concept Study was recognized with a prestigious Honor Award in the QUAD Design Award competition presented by the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Jurors selected 29 recipients from a pool of 234 submissions, and UPenn ICA Concept Study, which is no longer in the pipeline, was one of two projects selected to receive an award in the category of Unbuilt Projects. JSA was recognized at an awards ceremony on November 9 at the QUAD (Quality United Architectural Design) conference in Albany, New York.

The 2017 QUAD Awards spanned across four AIA affiliates: AIA Connecticut, AIA New Jersey, AIA New York, and AIA Pennsylvania, the competition being open to firms residing or practicing in these states. Jurors included Tom Liebel (FAIA, Principal, Marks Thomas Architects), Heather Cass (FAIA, Cass Associates Architects) and Jon Pemdorf (FAIA, Perkins & Will.)
