2020 Brings BVH Two American Architecture Awards

This year, we were honored to have two BVH projects recognized with American Architecture Awards, which honor the “most significant new contemporary architecture, landscape architecture, interiors, and urban planning in the United States.”

The Nebraska Center for Advanced Professional Studies, located in Fairfield, Nebraska, was one of 13 projects chosen in the Schools and Universities category. This project, completed for client South Central Unified School District, features a “progressive pedagogy and unconventional school design.” See the entry on the American Architecture site or learn more on our project page.

The Niobrara River Valley Preserve Center, located in Johnstown, Nebraska, seeks to “amplify the natural environment through sustainable methods and nuanced material choices.” Explore more about this project on the American Architecture site, or find more information and additional images on our site.

Congratulations to the project teams, our clients, and our consultants on these honors.



More About the American Architecture Awards

Since 1994, The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, together with The European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and Metropolitan Arts Press, have organized The American Architecture Awards as away to honor the best, new significant buildings and landscape and planning projects designed and/or built in the United States and abroad by the most important American architects and planners practicing nationally and internationally.

The American Architecture Awards give an important overview of the current aesthetic direction of today’s commercial, corporate, institutional, and residential work in the United States to the real estate, banking, business, and corporate community, as well as to the press and general public.

 The program is one of the Museum’s most important public education outreach initiatives produced throughout the year―to both the Museum’s U.S. and international audience. The American Architecture Awards are dedicated to the recognition of excellence in architecture and urbanism in the United States. 

The program awards pays tribute to new developments in design and underscores the directions and understanding of current cutting-edge processes consistent with today’s design thinking.
