Thompson Exhibit Building at Mystic Seaport Wins Institutional Award of Merit

The CT Green Building Council (CTGBC) held its annual Green Building Awards Ceremony last month at Stony Creek Brewery in Branford. Each year, CTGBC recognizes outstanding green building projects and design efforts in Connecticut in different categories, including residential, commercial, and public/institutional buildings. This year’s award winners featured an exciting array of projects that prioritized both environmental sustainability and meeting important social goals.

Among the award winners was the Thompson Exhibit Building at Mystic Seaport winning the Institutional Award of Merit.  A/Z served as the construction manager and Centerbrook Architects and Planners were the designers of the building which draws design cues from the interior of a wooden ship, the undulating sea, and a spiraling nautilus shell.

The Thompson Exhibit Building was also recognized earlier this year by ArchDaily, one of the world’s most popular architecture websites, as one of the Best 100 Wood Projects in the U.S.
