Pickard Chilton’s Akamai Headquarters in Cambridge, MA and Uber Sky Loft in Melbourne, Australia have received recognition for sustainable architecture.

Pickard Chilton’s Akamai Building in Cambridge Grabs AIA Connecticut Award

Architecture studio Pickard Chilton has had two of its projects — Akamai Technologies’ global headquarters building in Cambridge, MA and the design concept for Uber Sky Loft in Melbourne, Australia — recognized by AIA Connecticut’s 2022 Sustainable Architecture awards.

The 482,000-square-foot, 19-story Akamai building in the Kendall neighborhood received a Merit Award in the New Construction Category, while Uber Sky Loft was honored with a Commendation for Conceptual Design with a focus on Adaptive Reuse, Embodied Carbon & Mobility in the Conceptual or Research-Based Projects category.

AIA Connecticut’s Sustainable Architecture awards program recognizes the efforts of licensed CT architects who have developed and demonstrated ways to secure a more sustainable and environmentally thriving future. Equally important is the creation of durable, comfortable, and healthy spaces.
