2020 Recipient of Virginia by Design Awards

Thank you again to The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design & Virginia by Design Awards for recognizing us in 2020 for the Prize for Public Interest Design: Community Engagement and Participation! We are very honored! And an extra special thank you to 3North for their hard work on designing our Tredegar site!

This prize is for a creative project that has transformed its surroundings whether a setting, neighborhood, or community. It is for an individual or entity responsible for shepherding the project within Virginia. ACWM looks forward to continuing to be a hub of activity and community for years to come!
