WASHINGTON, D.C.—May 11, 2022—The National Building Museum announced today it will present its 2022 Honor Award to global built environment consulting firm Arup. The Museum recognizes Arup as the 35th recipient of this award for its seven decades of collaboration and creativity dedicated to shaping a better world through the built environment.
“We are thrilled to present Arup with the 35th annual Honor Award and look forward to celebrating the organization’s contributions and future growth. Arup has long been at the forefront of the most ambitious and challenging design and engineering projects. With an intense focus on sustainability and innovation, the firm’s commitment to solving the most pressing problems impacting communities across the globe is exemplary and deserving of such an honor,” said Anthony Greenberg, Museum Board Chair and Executive Vice President, JBG SMITH.
Arup will receive the Honor Award during the Museum’s Gala on June 16. That evening, the Museum will also unveil its new Institutional Pillars, which provide a vision for impact and focus for its work. These four Pillars: Equity, Environment, Innovation and Wonder, now guide the organization. “Arup’s work in Creating Sustainable Futures is at the heart of their purpose,” said Aileen Fuchs, President and Executive Director of the National Building Museum. “This work directly aligns with all four of our Pillars, and this ethos, to make the world sustainable, drives both our institutions. Both Arup and the Museum are working to make a lasting and positive impact on the built world through our respective work.”
