STUDIO ENÉE participated in the 2017 AIA Women in Leadership Summit in Washington,DC

The 2017 Women’s Leadership Summit is a 2-day conference for women in positions of leadership. The Summit focuses on supporting women in leadership by providing a forum to recognize, inform, and champion the work being created by women in architecture. We were honored to be one of 400 women attending the conference this year and we were inspired by the wisdom of Beverly Willis from the Beverly Willis Foundation.

Sho-Ping Chin Grant for the AIA Women in Leadership Summit

In honor of Sho-Ping Chin, FAIA, there is a new grant opportunity for recipients to attend the 2017 AIA Women’s Leadership Summit. Sho-Ping was a Principal at Payette and in 2009 the founding leader of the inaugural AIA Women's Leadership Summit. Tragically Sho-Ping succumbed to cancer in 2015, but her legacy of women’s leadership continues. The memorial fund established in her name is focused on funding the development of future women leaders in architecture. The fund is offered in partnership with The American Institute of Architects. Natasha Espada from STUDIO ENÉE is serving as one of the jurors for this very important grant.

STUDIO ENÉE wins a BSA/AIA Unbuilt Architecture Award

The Boston Society of Architects has awarded STUDIO ENÉE with an Unbuilt Architecture Award for Moon Island Zipline. The Moon Island Zipline project creates an opportunity for the general public to access Moon Island by ziplining over the existing tanks without having access to the secure island. The existing sewage tanks are repurposed as a floating wetland and are planted with native species, providing a habitat for marine life and to help clean the water. Two glass and concrete towers on either side of the island are accessed exclusively by boat. Stairs lead to the ziplining platforms, which are shifted in plan for easy take off and landing. The towers provide exhibits with educational information about the history of Moon Island and its sustainable mission.
