RAMSA's East Hampton Town Hall Wins a 2012 American Architecture AwardAugust 2, 2012
RAMSA's East Hampton Town Hall has been honored with a 2012 American Architecture Award by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. The project will be featured in the exhibition "New American Architecture", which will open at the Istanbul Biennale in October 2012 and travel in Europe from January to June 2013.
Our design for the East Hampton Town Hall took a collection of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century timber-framed vernacular structures, preserved by a couple as a residence and then donated to the Town, and organized them as a new campus for local government. The project has already been honored with a Citation for Design from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) New York State Chapter and a 2012 Design Excellence Award from the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities.
The American Architectural Awards is an annual program that honors new and cutting-edge design and promotes American architecture to the public at large. This year a record number of projects for buildings, landscape architecture, and urban planning were entered. The 2012 Jury for Awards was organized by the Federation of Korean Architects in Seoul, South Korea and 87 projects were honored. A full list of winning projects for 2012 can be viewed at the Museum's website or at www.europeanarch.edu.
RAMSA partner Randy Correll worked with Mr. Stern on the project.
