Metropolis awarded with the 2009 Institute Honors for Collaborative Achievement

Metropolis was among those recognized with a 2009 Institute Honors for Collaborative Achievement by the American Institute of Architects. This honor is bestowed upon professionals, clients, organizations, architect teams, and knowledge communities, who have had a beneficial influence on or advanced the architectural profession.

Here are a couple samples from our nomination letters:
“Metropolis was and is a magazine for and about architects but it is clearly also a magazine for lovers of architecture and design,” –Mike Mense, FAIA

“Susan [Szenasy, editor in chief] and Metropolis have used their forum to educate the public and the profession on the values of good design and innovative ways to achieve our goals. Her influence also reaches manufacturers who value her directness, support, and expectation that their products meet the needs of architects and designers today and are eco-friendly.” –Eva L. Maddox, Assoc. AIA

And we couldn’t be more excited about the other great people, organizations, and efforts who were also selected for this year’s achievement award:

Photographer Peter Aron
