University of Waterloo School of Architecture professor Terri Meyer Boake has been honoured by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) with AISC’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The honour, awarded to 11 individuals this year, recognizes living individuals who have made a difference in the success of AISC and the structural steel industry.

Meyer Boake is cited “for her significant contributions to AESS (architecturally exposed structural steel) and architectural education as well as her service to AISC.”

Terri Meyer Boake has been teaching building construction, structures, environmental design, and film since 1986. She works with Canadian Institute of Steel Construction, Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, and AISC to develop teaching resources for architectural education, specializing in AESS. She has published several books about various aspects of steel design and won a 2015 Special Achievement Award for Understanding Steel Design: An Architectural Design Manual.

“It’s always a pleasure to recognize the exceptional people who have driven our industry to where it stands today – and who continue to ensure a bright future,” Charles J. Carter, president of the association, said.

Based in Chicago, the AISC is a non-profit technical institute and trade association that was established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry.
