Four SOM projects will be featured at the Built by Women NYC exhibition at the Center for Architecture in New York City. The show, which opens on March 2, 2015, will spotlight 98 sites designed, engineered, or constructed by women throughout the city. The projects were selected following a public competition organized by the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation last fall.
According to the foundation, a jury composed of engineers, architects, and construction professionals selected sites that reflect “strong design, have historical or cultural significance, or demonstrate substantial social or community impact.” The four SOM projects, Union Carbide Headquarters, Pepsi-Cola World Headquarters, the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Zuckerman Research Center, demonstrate the profound impact the firm has had on the built environment of New York City for decades. Former SOM architect Natalie de Blois served as the Senior Designer for Union Carbide Headquarters and the Pepsi-Cola World Headquarters. SOM Director Lisa Gould served as the Senior Designer for the John Jay College of Criminal Justice and as the Senior Designer/Project Planner for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Zuckerman Research Center.
An opening celebration for the exhibition will be held at the Center for Architecture on March 2, 2015, at 6 p.m. The show will run through April 11, 2015.
