TRADECRAFT INDUSTRIES WINS INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARD / by Joe Black

Tradecraft Industries Recognized by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies

 

Denver, Colo. (August 12, 2019) – The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies is recognizing Roth Sheppard for their exceptional design of Tradecraft Industries.

“Conceptually Tradecraft Industries was designed around the idea of multi-use. By selecting multiple-use building components, systems, and materials the concept allows for cost and labor efficiencies while offering flexibility and streamlined construction,” said Adam Harding, a Principal at Roth Sheppard and the architect responsible for the design.  

Completed in February of 2017, the project consists of a 19,000 SF industrial space with 20 private offices and over 200 flexible co-working memberships for small and start-up construction companies and design firms. This collaborative environment provides a place where contractors and designers can organically grow and support one another.

“This year, the Museum received a record number of projects for new buildings, landscape architecture, and urban planning from the most important firms practicing in the U.S. and globally,” said Ioannis Karalias,

Architect Museum Vice President. “From a shortlist of 400 projects, the 2019 Jury for Awards was held in Miami, and over 100 projects were selected by a distinguished group of Miami architects, educators, and developers.”

On Thursday, October 10, 2019, The Chicago Athenaeum, together with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, will host an Awards Gala Dinner Ceremony at the newly completed Arquitectonica Hotel, Mr. C Coconut Grove in Miami, honoring the winning architects, clients, and developers who have received The American Architectural Awards.
