Sarah’s work has been recognized nationally and internationally. Awards include first prize in the History Channel’s City of the Future Competition, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) College of Fellows Latrobe Prize, and many AIA Chicago design awards. In 2010, the Architectural League of New York named UrbanLab as an Emerging Voice.
