2017.04 | JCA wins Best Commercial Project for 2017 from the Confindustria Ceramica

We were so honored to present MediaMath 4 WTC at the press conference for the 2017 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition in Orlando, and in good company, too: congrats to Renzo Piano Workshop for their institutional project win, and Bromley Caldari Architects for residential.

From the award letter: "MediaMath 4 World Trade Center is an exemplary project that makes beautiful use of Italian tile in crafting a stunning interior space." Nice!

As I noted in my award acceptance, good projects require good clients, and we could not ask for a better client than MediaMath.

2016.07 | We are thrilled to be recognized with a 2016 Boston Preservation Alliance Award

So proud to be on the winning team for this 2016 Preservation Achievement Award from the Boston Preservation Alliance, recognizing our work bringing Lovejoy Wharf back to life. JCA worked closely with the landlord's team to guide the renovation of what is now a gem along the waterfront. "What a joy it is to see new life brought to such a key entry to Boston, particularly since I remember as a boy wondering why no one would stop the decay that brought more of the wharf into the harbor each year," said Greg Galer, Executive Director of the Boston Preservation Alliance. Thank you to TAT, the landlord's architect, for joining us in a great collaboration on behalf of Converse and Boston.
