Small Center project wins AIA Louisiana Honor Award
Hollygrove Shade-Water Pavilion, a project by the Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design, was recently recognized with an Honor Award in the small project category of the American Institute of Architects Louisiana 2018 design competition.
A nationally recognized panel of judges selected 16 winning projects from 73 entries submitted by architects statewide. The jury noted the Shade-Water Pavilion’s “great relationship between the scale of the human and the scale of the structure” and “incredible concrete bays.”
The pavilion provides an outdoor community gathering area in an unused infrastructural space with a mechanism to collect, display and distribute rain water. Tulane School of Architecture faculty members Judith Kinnard, FAIA and Irene Keil served as design leads with Small Center staff member Nick Jenisch as project manager on the collaborative effort with students, faculty, staff and community partners Carrollton/Hollygrove Community Development Corporation and the New Orleans Sewage and Water Board.
The Small Center is the community design center of the Tulane School of Architecture. Learn more about the center’s work with nonprofit organizations and community groups to provide design services to underserved communities at http://small.tulane.edu.
