28th Annual Preservation Design Awards Ceremony

CPF seeks to honor, through its Preservation Design Awards program, those who have achieved the highest level of craftsmanship in certain areas of historic preservation, in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards.  Over 425 projects have received this prestigious award since the programs’ inception in 1983.

"We are very honored this year by the record number of PDA nominations received and the consistent excellence and variety of historic preservation efforts throughout California, which they represent," expressed Steade Craigo, FAIA, 2011 PDA Jury Chair.  "Selecting the best of the best is always a challenge and was certainly so this year.  The selected projects are representative of the expanding and inclusive nature of California historic preservation interests, efforts, and activities, in such singularly important areas of preservation planning research, affordable housing, sustainability and green design, modern architecture and infill design, and diverse cultural and ethnic interests." 

The Preservation Design Awards will be presented during a gala event on Saturday, October 1 at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music
