PRINCETON, NJ — At an event celebrating practice excellence and notable achievements in the Garden State’s building and design community, the New Jersey Society of Architects (AIA-NJ) -- a chapter of the American Institute of Architects -- honored integrated design firm JZA+D of Princeton with the title Architectural Firm of the Year for 2014.
JZA+D’s partners, Joshua Zinder, AIA, and Marlyn Zucosky, IIDA, accepted the prestigious service award at the AIA-NJ Annual Awards Dinner.
JZA+D was selected from a distinguished field of candidate firms for the award. “Service award” honorees, as the name implies, have distinguished themselves not only as designers but also as contributors to the betterment of the architecture industry and community statewide. Zinder, JZA+D’s founding principal, also received AIA-NJ Architect of the Year honors for 2013.
The firm’s collaborative design process aims to build project-specific partnerships. As a result of JZA+D’s implementation of integrated practice models, the partners Zinder and Zucosky have been able to offer clients more potent solutions that combine architecture and interior design expertise into a single package.
