2016 Recipient

Institute Honor Awards for Architecture


The American Enterprise National Headquarters Renovation is the recipient of a 2016 National American Institute of Architects (AIA) Institute Honor Award for Architecture, the professions highest recognition of works that exemplify excellence in architecture, interior architecture and urban design. This is the same award the building received in 1967 for its original design.


BNIM, the architectural firm responsible for the design of our renovation, will accept this award at the AIA 2016 National Convention in Philadelphia in May. This award is one of eleven in this category, selected from over roughly 500 submissions. Notes of interest from the judges include the following:


"This project encompasses the nearly invisible rehabilitation of an eight-story office building designed by Skidmore, Owing & Merrill’s Gordon Bunshaft, which received a 1967 AIA Honor Award for Architecture. Original systems were meticulously integrated with the building architecture. Rehabilitation required substantial demolition of the interior, which was obsessively reconstructed to accommodate new building and life-safety systems. The renovated space addresses human efficiency and evolving workplace standards with both systems and a minimal, modern office design that enhances human productivity while making AEG’s significant art collection an integrated part of the experience."
