For 20 years, the Charleston Regional Business Journal has honored 40 individuals under 40 years old for their professional engagement and community service in the Charleston area. This year's list of recipients has been announced and we are pleased to learn that our own Aaron Bowman, AIA, LEED AP has been honored with an award! Congratulations to Aaron & all of the 2017 Forty Under 40 recipients! Well deserved! See the full list of honorees here.
Liollio Architecture hosted students and mentors from the St. John’s High School ACE Program at our office on Tuesday. The students spent the morning getting a first-hand look into the day to day workings of an architecture office. They participated in a project-based learning exercise that guided them through sketching three dimensional objects in plan, section and elevation. They then continued work on their semester project to design a new wrestling facility for their school. Thank you to everyone involved for it a fun and memorable day!
Liollio is pleased to announce the elevation of Jennifer Charzewski, AIA, LEED AP, to Principal. As part of Liollio Architecture’s third generation of ownership, Jennifer promotes both the well-being of our design studio and the communities that we serve. Jennifer believes that architecture is about people, and designing places to gather, learn, work, and play is an opportunity to celebrate the pride and the story of a community. “ Liollio Architecture is a family, in every sense of the word, and the talent, enthusiasm, and commitment of our team makes our work a joy.”
A graduate of Texas A&M University and the University of Minnesota, Jennifer is a past President of AIA Charleston, a member of the AIA South Carolina Disaster Assistance Committee, a volunteer with ACE Mentors of Charleston and is currently working with an AIA South Carolina group to establish a committee for Equity in Architecture in South Carolina.
Jennifer has been part of the Liollio team for nine years and her design leadership spans from the award-winning St. Helena Library at Penn Center, Rock Hill’s Main Street Children’s Museum and Charleston International Airport to current projects including Richland Libraries, Charleston Fire Station #11 in West Ashley, James Island Town Hall, SCPRT State Welcome Centers, Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry and College of Charleston Simons Center for the Arts.
Liollio Architecture is proud to announce that Principal Dinos Liollio has been elected to the 2017 College of Fellows for the American Institute of Architects. AIA Fellows are recognized with the AIA’s highest membership honor for their exceptional work and contributions to architecture and society. The judging is rigorous, with approximately three percent of the AIA’s 88,000+ members having this distinction. There are multiple categories upon which a candidate might be considered. With nearly 100 awards, Dinos is recognized for his contribution to the design environment. We would like to congratulate Dinos and all of this year's recipients. Visit the AIA National website here.
ACE Mentors is a National Mentoring Program that mentors high school kids in (A) Architecture, (C)Construction and (E) Engineering. This is the Charleston SC Chapter. Liollio's Mary Tran, an ACE Charleston Mentor, participated in the event, giving students a better understanding of elevations. She can be seen in the video at 2:10. Liollio Principal Dinos Liollio, FAIA, will be the guest speaker on May 17th at this year's ACE Charleston Banquet. He will speak about his life experiences and journey.
