restoring structural integrity to a community with community.


2008 AIA Dallas Design Awards

To all who swung a hammer, drew lines, cooked eggs, taped and bedded, blasted music, hauled lumber, poured concrete, bent re-bar, sat to visit...


Last evening, Thursday, September 18th, the Holding House / CONGO STREET INITIATIVE was honored with not one, but two awards at the 2008 AIA Dallas Design Awards celebration. The Holding House received both the Sustainability Award (.pdf) and the Community Design Award (.pdf). (Check out this video clip - Thanks, Curtis! - and mention in the Dallas Morning News)

Each and every one of you should be incredibly proud of your role in the project and the evolving process of the INITIATIVE - "your input is vital".
