The American Institute of Architects, New York Chapter Presents the Public architect award to Faith Rose, AIA.

The Public Architect Award was established in 1984 to recognize and express appreciation for those who have made significant contributions while in the public sector. This year, We are proud to present this award to Faith Rose, AIA. Faith is Executive Director of the Public Design Commission and formerly the Senior Design Liaison for the NYC department of Design and Construction, where she was responsible for the development and implementation of the Design Excellence program from 2004-2014, overseeing the design process of more than 200 projects. Faith is a committed advocate for design excellence and design equity citywide.

As an ardent advocate for public design excellence, Faith has sought to break down barriers across government agencies and between city government and the design community. She has supported architects and encouraged relationships between architecture firms and government agencies. She has also organized numerous events and speaking engagements open to the public and focused on public sector work.
