Cooper Carry awards: collaboration in action

Awards are nice, yes, as a testament to the hard work and innovation that goes into a project. At Cooper Carry, we share every award with a client team and the community we connect with to create the project. In the spirit of collaboration, we share the recognition.

And not to brag too much, but more than 80 percent of our ongoing work is for existing clients who choose to work with us again. These are the best awards we receive: the trust of our clients, which spurs the dedication, innovation and collaboration of our teams. Along the way, there have been:

  • A total of nearly 150 design awards, and counting
  • More than 24 awards from our peer professional societies including the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Landscape Architecture (ASLA)
  • Connected communities that provide innovative spaces for people to live, learn, work and relax
