Alpha One and the American Institute of Architects, Maine Chapter recently celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act by honoring Maine’s top examples of accessible architecture.
Two top awards, called the Honor Awards, were awarded. The first went to Bucksport architect John Gordon for the design of 363HOUSE for his client and daughter Jessica. Jessica is a C6/C7 quadriplegic – paralyzed from mid-chest down with limited use of arms and hands. The design mandate for 363HOUSE was to support Jessica’s abilities and minimize barriers to an accessible life.
The second award went to WBRC Architects ∙ Engineers for their renovation of the Cross Insurance Arena. The renovations were designed to attract and accommodate larger shows and events, while offering visitors safer and equal access to Portland’s premier sports and entertainment venue.
