Opened in February 2008, the Sheila C. Johnson Design center combined four adjacent buildings at street level to create a 32,800-square-foot urban quad and programming destination. The center was funded by a generous $7 million donation from philanthropist and Parsons board chair Sheila C. Johnson.
This is the latest in a string of design awards for the center, including the 2008 AIA New York State Award of Excellence, the 2008 American Institute of Architects NY/Boston Society of Architects Biennial Building Type Honor Award for Educational Facility Design, and the 2007 American Institute of Architects/NY Merit Award for Projects.
