Architect Jill N. Lerner has received a 96th Anniversary Leadership Award from the New York Building Congress. She is a principal of Kohn Pedersen Fox.
“Her dedication and commitment to the city is what has made a difference not only for the AIA, but for all of us at the Building Congress and throughout the industry,” said Richard T. Anderson, president emeritus of the Building Congress.
In accepting the award, Ms. Lerner discussed her career and the pride she takes in her work. She explained the importance of design on all scales – from the subway system, to the streetscape, to the skyline – because it affects all citizens of New York.
First Deputy Mayor Anthony E. Shorris and Husam Ahmad, chairman and CEO of HAKS, also received Leadership Awards.
