Recognition for Blakely - Award of Merit from AIA Seattle Chapter for 2020


Mithun (the architect firm who designed the Blakely building) recently received an Award of Merit at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Seattle chapter 2020 Honor Awards for Washington Architecture.
“I think the connections between the indoors and outdoors, and just the way the building is integrated into the site and the topography is a really brilliant solution. It’s going to be a loved school for many, many generations. I really applaud both its little bit of whimsy, that will be fun for the children, but also its rigor in which it addressed environmental and high-performance issues in the building.” - Juror for the award.
