Jerome Receives 2019 AIANYS HH Richardson Award for Public Architecture


The New York State Chapter of the American Institute of Architect (AIANYS) awarded Pamela Jerome, FAIA, LEEP AP, FAPT, F.US/ICOMOS the prestigious Henry Hobson Richardson Award for Public Architecture as part of the 2019 Excelsior Awards program. The awards were presented on the evening of Tuesday, May 6th, 2019 in Albany, NY at a joint meeting of the AIANYS and the Associated General Contractors of New York State.

Pamela has made a reputation restoring landmark structures. She believes that historic structures anchor communities and provide a sense of place. Her professional work has impacted the public sector by enhancing these attributes. The award committee noted “…Pamela has contributed to the philosophy that will affect New York’s public landmarks for generations to come as well as the physical preservation of some of the state’s most important buildings.” Projects that Pamela has led include Frank Lloyd Wright’s Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater, the historic Breakers and Château-sur-Mer mansions in Newport, RI and Louis Sullivan’s Bayard-Condict building in NYC.

The Henry Hobson Richardson Award recognizes AIA members licensed in NYS and practicing in the private sector who have made a significant contribution to the quality of NYS public architecture and who have established a portfolio of accomplishments to that end. One of the founding fathers of American architecture, Henry Hobson Richardsonian designed many significant public buildings in New York State and the United States. Richardson’s career and body of work exemplify the importance of design excellence in the public sector.
