Jessica Sheridan, AIA
Sheridan, based in Gensler’s New York office, has embraced her role as ambassador for the profession, especially through her work with the AIA New York Center for Architecture. For the local chapter, she has also made significant contributions to the emerging professionals committee and online journal e-Oculus. Said the jury: “She is a voice for those not practicing architecture in a conventional way, and her tireless contributions to the profession embody what it should mean to be an associate of the AIA.” (She was licensed in March.)
G. Martin Moeller Jr., Assoc. AIA
The senior curator at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., Moeller has overseen widely successful shows such as “Unbuilt Washington” and “Liquid Stone,” the latter of which explored innovative uses of concrete in architecture. He has also authored two editions of the AIA Guide to the Architecture of Washington, D.C. “Through his articles, books, and exhibitions, he has proved his dedication to the field and showed the importance of architecture to the public,” said the jury.
Patrick Thomas Weber, Assoc. AIA
An associate at Smith Gee Studio in Nashville, Tenn., Weber has served as project manager for a downtown historic façade renovation project in Winchester, Tenn., aimed at preserving the state’s town square heritage. He has also been lauded for his leadership, serving as AIA Gulf States regional associate director, and currently as board treasurer at Rebuilding Together Nashville, an affordable housing nonprofit. “His perception, vision, talent, skills, perseverance, and dedication reflect the unique attributes of his generation,” said the jury.
