Christopher Nielson Wins 2022 AIA Young Architects Award

Award Announcements / March 17, 2022 by Bruner/Cott

Bruner/Cott Associate Christopher Nielson, AIA, CPHC, LEED AP, has been recognized by the AIA as a recipient of the 2022 Young Architects Award!

This award recognizes individuals that have demonstrated exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the profession early in their careers. Christopher joins just 22 other honorees in this year’s class of recipients and will be celebrated at a ceremony during AIA’22 in Chicago this summer.

Christopher uses design as an act of environmentalism, leveraging sustainable and low-carbon approaches so that both new buildings and historic structures can help address climate change. Driven by a ceaseless curiosity for building systems and enclosures, he envisions innovative solutions that strike a balance between high-performance design and embodied carbon reductions. Christopher is a thought leader in sustainability in Boston and beyond, and he has commanded regional and national audiences, counseled municipalities, and shared his broad experience in the classroom.

“He is advancing the practice of sustainable design by centering the connection between carbon and buildings—both embodied and operational carbon. He is equally skilled in the creative reuse of historic structures and high-performance new construction projects.”

“His work is literally moving the needle in key aspects of environmental design and changing the meaning of buildings in how they respond to our changing world.”

Congratulations, Christopher!
