Mariko Masuoka to be honored by Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (Oct. 9, 2014) — A PCPA principal is among a select group of Connecticut women being honored for their achievements by a statewide organization.

Mariko Masuoka will be recognized by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame at the organization’s 21st annual induction ceremony and celebration on Oct. 29 in Hartford. In addition to ceremonially adding three permanent members to the Hall of Fame, the organization is honoring several women who have made significant contributions in their fields. The theme of this year’s event is “Shaping our World: Women in Design & Innovation.” Masuoka, the only architect to be honored, joins distinguished honorees in science, business, technology, and education. More information about the event is available from the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame.

Masuoka, who joined the firm in its early years and became a principal in 2005, is responsible for many of the firm’s academic projects. Her work includes the Malone Engineering Center, the first LEED Gold building at Yale University, and Yale-NUS College, the campus under construction in Singapore for the new institution created jointly by Yale and the National University of Singapore. She has also led the design teams for commercial developments and public buildings around the world. She is currently leading the design of a mixed-use development adjacent to the historic church campus of Trinity Wall Street in Lower Manhattan.

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame is an educational outreach organization whose mission is to honor publicly the achievement of Connecticut women, preserve their stories, educate the public and inspire the continued achievements of women and girls.
