The American Institute of Architects awarded Matt Shoor AIA with the New York Chapter’s ENYA Merit Award last night during the 2016 Inaugural at the Center for Architecture. ENYA (Emerging New York Architects) bestows this award annually. This award recognizes Matt’s accomplishments as an architect as well as his efforts to develop programming both within Dattner Architects and the Chapter to broaden the discussion about design and our profession to all levels of practitioner.
At Dattner Architects, Matt is managing a team of designers for the construction administration of a 52-story luxury rental building in Downtown Brooklyn. He co-leads an in-house lecture series that fosters dialogue about design and practice through staff-led presentations on process, culture, and history. Matt also continues to be involved in developing programming for the Chapter, such as the recent, highly successful GROW symposium.
