The Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Pierce has accepted the nomination to be the 2019 Apple Award honoree on behalf of the Cincinnati Museum Center team. This honor is bestowed upon an individual or entity that exemplifies the foundation’s mission to increase and encourage improvement of the built environment of Greater Cincinnati. Elizabeth Pierce has earned this recognition through her incredible leadership throughout the renovation process of the Union Terminal. It was a tremendous team effort that took top professionals from every corner of the building process to complete. It is through their dedication combined with an enormous amount of work that they were able to restore one of the most iconic buildings in Cincinnati. To lead such an effort with so many continuously moving parts proved Pierce to be undeniably worthy of this honor.
The Apple Gala will honor Pierce’s contribution to Cincinnati’s built environment while raising funds to support Design LAB, a K-12 architecture and design education program that reaches about 2,000 students in the Greater Cincinnati Area each year as well as other AFC programs.
