4/19/2018:  As Project Architect at WRNS Studio, I had the great honor of working with a fantastic team on Sonoma Academy‘s new Janet Durgin Guild and Commons building. And now I am so excited to say that it has won a 2018 The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on the Environment (COTE) Top Ten Award.
