Honor Award – William D. Smith Memorial Award
Project name: Paul Revere House Education & Visitor Center
Project location: Boston
Firm name: Mills Whitaker Architects
Jury comments: Two newly accessible floors maintain the integrity of a historic site while broadening its educational and cultural reach. The project isn’t perfect—users must go outside to access the second floor and moments in the courtyard are stepped—but it sets a precedent for creative problem-solving regarding our nation’s historic resources.
