2011 AIA Seattle Young Architect Award – Congratulations Myer!!

Myer Harrell AIA, LEED AP BD+C: Seattle’s AIA Young Architect of the Year!

Our own Myer Harrell AIA, LEED AP BD+C has been awarded the 2011 AIA Seattle Young Architect Award. This is a huge honor; only one young architect is recognized each year. The awards dinner is on May 21st at the Palace Ballroom.

The award recognizes “exceptional leadership and . . . significant contributions to the professional in an early stage of their architectural career.” We knew Myer had this in spades. His participation on the Eco-Laboratory team, which won first prize in the 2008 USGBC Natural Talent Design Competition and was featured in the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt 2010 Design Triennial, his work with AIA Seattle, and his leadership of Weber Thompson’s Urban Agriculture initiative is just what Myer is involved in downtown. He also teaches part-time at UW, works with Cascadia’s Seattle Branch Emerging Professionals, consults with the USGBC on the Education Events Committee and volunteers with Historic Green, a grassroots rebuilding effort in New Orleans.

We already knew how great Myer is (nicest guy around), but we are thrilled the rest of the world now knows. Congratulations Myer!!
