The El Paso Community Foundation received the Cornerstone Award from the Texas Society of Architects (TxA) for our innovative architectural projects in El Paso. In 1986, the Foundation saved the Plaza Theater from demolition and conversion into a parking garage. The success of the restoration assisted in further investment in the area. Consequently, the Roderick Artspace Lofts were developed to provide affordable live/workspace for artists. We also led the international design competition for the new children’s museum. Snohetta was selected for the innovative build, and La Nube: The Shape of Imagination is under construction right now.
