Jim Henry, AIA, Receives 2015 AIA Young Architects Award
The AIA Young Architects Award, now in its 22nd year, is given to individuals who have shown exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the profession in an early stage of their architectural career. Each year, AIA distinguishes individuals for meritorious achievement who have been licensed to practice architecture fewer than 10 years.
Jim earned a position at HDR as a senior healthcare designer and was subsequently named design principal at the firm’s Dallas studio, the youngest design principal in the firm’s 98-year history. The majority of his award-winning portfolio has centered on healthcare design. Two recent projects—the Parkland Memorial Hospital, an AIA Dallas Design Award Winner and the largest hospital construction project in the United States; and the Lackland Air Force Base Ambulatory Care Center, an Honor Award recipient in the U.S. Air Force Design Awards and the largest clinic ever designed for the Department of Defense—demonstrate his commitment to advancing health and wellness through design. Jim served on the AIA Dallas Board of Directors in 2013 and 2014, and is a past chair of the AIA Dallas Design Awards program.
The jury for the 2015 Young Architects Award included William J. Stanley, III, FAIA (Chair), Stanley Love-Stanley, PC; Lenore M. Lucey, FAIA, LML Consulting; Raymond 'Skipper' Post, FAIA, Post Architects; Albert W. Rubeling, FAIA, Rubeling & Associates, Inc. and John Sorrenti, FAIA, JRS Architect, PC.
