At its annual gala, the New Jersey Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA NJ) awarded Megan Pritts, Assoc. AIA, with the service award for Intern Architect of the Year 2016.
Pritts is an architectural designer at JZA+D in Princeton where she is involved in the firm's imaginative and powerful projects for hospitality, workplace, corporate, and residential clients. She received the prestigious annual service award in recognition of "having made a significant contribution within the Architectural Experience Program [AXP, formerly IDP]" and for distinguishing herself by not just meeting the program requirements but surpassing them.
The award also recognizes Pritts' professional and technical accomplishments.
AIA-NJ leadership selected the recipients for design and service awards at a 2016 membership gathering. Pritts attended the chapter's annual black-tie-optional gala last week to accept the award.
"Megan brings a passion to her work that extends beyond our studio, into a commitment to involvement in our community," says Joshua Zinder, AIA, founding principal of JZA+D. "She's a credit to our firm, and we are very proud of all of her achievements, including this service award honor."
