NY society for architects to honor fox & fowle.

Fox & Fowle Architects will receive the prestigious Sidney L. Strauss Memorial Award from the New York Society for Architects (NYSA) for its "contributions to the betterment of architecture in New York City." The award, the organization's highest honor, will be presented at the NYSA's 95th Annual Awards Dinner Dance on Nov. 14 at the W Hotel in Midtown Manhattan.

Fox & Fowle Architects has distinguished itself in the field of architecture through a commitment to quality design that integrates the principles of sustainable architecture into every aspect of its professional practice. The firm is multi-discipline, with individual studios that include specialties in commercial design, urban design & planning, and educational & cultural design and public work.

Most notably in New York, Fox & Fowle has led the charge forging a renaissance for Times Square. The firm's award-winning Conde Nast Building at Four Times Square is the first green high-rise office building in the country. In addition, Fox & Fowle has designed ten other projects in Times Square including the Reuters Building at Three Times Square and the dramatic Times Square subway station entrance. The firm is currently working with Renzo Piano on the new headquarters tower for The New York Times.

As a leader in urban design, Fox and Fowle received much acclaim for its work on the Jamaica Station master plan, called "Vision for Jamaica Center." The plan outlines a comprehensive strategy to redefine downtown Jamaica, Queens, New York as a commercial business center and the "gateway to JFK Airport."

Fox and Fowle actively sought to incorporate energy conservation measures in all of its projects long before the term "green" entered the popular lexicon. The firm employs design innovations to maximize the wellness of building users and minimize the environmental impact of its projects. Fox & Fowle recently led a team that authored the first-ever green multifamily guidelines for the Battery Park City Authority, and is currently working on the New York CyberCenter co-generation facility on Manhattan's West Side for the Durst Organization.

"Fox & Fowle's commitment to innovative de sign and green architecture has established it as one of the premier architectural firms in New York," said Philip Toscano, R.A., president of the NYSA.

"This is a tremendous honor for Fox & Fowle," said Bruce Fowle, cofounder and co-principal of Fox & Fowle. "We are all deeply grateful to the NYSA for this distinction. We are very proud of our work and appreciate the recognition of our peers".

This year's other NYSA award winners include John M. Johansen, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, and Barry Lewis, who will receive the NYSA's Distinguished Service Award.

Tickets to the Nov. 14 event are still available by calling (212) 385-8950.
