The National Building Museum has announced that it will present its 2021 Honor Award to global design firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM).
Inspired by this year’s honoree, the museum will transform the annual Honor Award into a Climate Change Call to Action, including weeks of provocative, expert-led online programming open to the public. On June 17, the Museum will present the award to SOM at a virtual event, acknowledging the firm’s contributions to the architectural canon and its historic leadership on the critical issues facing the building industry.
“Even as we celebrate the firm, SOM is challenging all of us by calling for immediate action that recognizes the urgency of climate change and advocates a transformational shift in how we design, build and do business,” said Anthony Greenberg, museum board chair and executive vice president at JBG SMITH. “We are proud to present our 2021 award as a platform for this vital effort. It is a strong reflection of NBM’s ongoing legacy of community and social impact.” The Museum Board also gratefully recognizes Amazon as the event’s Presenting+ sponsor.
