From Julie Eizenberg’s Firm’s site: “Julie Eizenberg is a founding Principal of Koning Eizenberg Architecture, established in 1981. She brings design vision and leadership to the firm’s wide range of projects and is recognized for her expertise involving cities, non-profit agencies, educational institutions and private developers. Ms. Eizenberg is an astute observer and institutional iconoclast leading investigations that reshape the way we think about the conventional buildings of everyday living. Under her and partner Hank Koning’s lead, the firm has earned more than 60 awards for their projects, including 25 AIA awards. As a result of her design direction, the firm has won two national competitions – Chicago Public School Northside, and the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, which opened in November 2004 to widespread acclaim.
