Stephanie Horowitz of ZeroEnergy Design, a green architecture firm, received the Earl R. Flansburgh Young Architects Award, a new award recognizing design excellence by an architect under 40. The award is co-sponsored by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA and the Flansburgh Family.

The award is named for Earl R. Flansburgh FAIA, a distinguished Boston architect and founder of Flansburgh Associates, who completed more than 200 diverse educational facilities projects during a career spanning more than 45 years.

The firm he founded has been guided by the philosophy that a well-designed building improves the quality of our lives.

The 2015 Flansburgh Young Architects Award was juried by the BSA Honors and Awards Committee, with special consideration given to candidates who embodied the design philosophies of Earl R. Flansburgh. The award was presented to Stephanie Horowitz at the 2015 Boston Society of Architects Design Awards Gala.
