Architect Tobias Holler Wins Presidential Technology Award

NYIT Convocation

Sustainable building is a key issue for communities around the world and especially on Long Island, where Tobias Holler has envisioned a "better burb" for green living. The architect received praise and a Presidential Technology Award for his use of technology in research and creative expression at NYIT's 2011 Convocation–a result of his design research for the "LIRR Long Island Radically Rezoned" project.

The project was a sustainable design entry for the 2010 "Build a Better Burb" contest sponsored by the Rauch Foundation. Of the contest's 212 submissions from 30 countries, Holler's team ranked among seven winning entries and won the People's Choice Award. The project also won first place in the d3 Natural Systems International Design Competition. Read more in his faculty profile.
