Since its creation in 1980, the National Building Museum (NBM) offers exhibits, presentations, and educational materials on the built environment. For the past 24 years, it has honored leading individuals and organizations in architecture, engineering, construction, planning, and design. This year’s Honor Award was a Salute to Civic Innovators which recognized the design firm Perkins+Will, the founders of the New Orleans Habitat Musicians’ Village, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon.
EmPower’s CEO David Schieren, an alumnus of the Solar Decathlon, was interviewed for a video the NBM created for the award. You can watch the inspiring video below (David first appears at 07:40). Cristina Zancani, David’s wife, also appears in the video:
