UNM McKinnon Center Wins AIA New Mexico Honor Award

by Bora Architects

The UNM McKinnon Center for Management has been honored with an AIA New Mexico 2021 elevAte Honor Award for Distinguished Architecture, the only honor award issued by the program this year.

The jury praised the building’s sophistication in plan and section, its role in framing a new campus gateway, its navigation of a large program around a common “living room,” and its mix of active and quiet spaces.

“This is a thoughtful, modern expression of rationality and classicism not seen very much these days,” remarked one juror. “The architecture is a very appropriate gateway to higher learning.”
