Patch featured Pace University's 2020 Design Award for its Student Landscape of Pace's New York City Campus in "Pace University's New Student-Centered Space Wins Design Award"

The American Institute of Architects New York State (AIANYS) has awarded Pace University and FXCollaborative a 2020 Design Award for its Student Landscape, in recognition of the dramatic transformation of Pace's New York City Campus. FXCollaborative, Pace's partner in developing the University's ongoing New York City Master Plan, received a Design Award of Merit in the Interiors Category.

"We were fortunate to partner with FXCollaborative, and we are honored to be recognized by the AIA New York State," said Pace University President Marvin Krislov. "Pace has been part of the lower Manhattan community for more than 100 years, and we're proud of our long commitment to helping students to transform their lives through the power of education. Our beautifully transformed spaces in One Pace Plaza and the historic 41 Park Row help us bring that legacy into the 21 century while connecting us to our downtown neighbors."

The award specifically highlights the recent interior renovations of One Pace Plaza, the University's signature building on its Lower Manhattan Campus, and 41 Park Row, a New York City landmarked building and former headquarters of the New York Times. The AIANYS jury noted that the extensive upgrades in One Pace Plaza – ranging from a vibrant new courtyard to a vast array of new student and faculty spaces – have improved circulation, function, flexibility, and have considered the building's unique structural conditions to create a "dramatic improvement to the student and faculty experience."

Located at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge and directly across from City Hall Park, the newly transformed One Pace Plaza further opens the University to an increasingly dynamic area of Manhattan, strategically positioning itself – and its current and future students – for success in the 21st century.

Additionally, 41 Park Row, built in 1889, further expands Pace's modern footprint and brand identity. Among the updates in 41 Park Row include a new home for the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, a public art gallery for student work, student commons, offices, and faculty space.
