Kelly Sutherlin McLeod ’83 and her firm, KSM Architecture of Long Beach, Calif., have received several awards for noteworthy projects.
McLeod served as the lead architect for the restoration of the Huntington Japanese Garden and House at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, Calif. Over the past year, she and her firm have won seven regional, state and national awards for the project, including this year’s Governor’s Historic Preservation Award.
Sponsored by the California Office of Historic Preservation, the award is determined by a jury of professionals representing a cross section of disciplines in the field of historic preservation. The honor will be presented in November in Sacramento, Calif.
In addition, McLeod recently received her fellowship designation from the American Institute of Architects, the highest honor awarded by the institute. Of the 75,000 registered architects in the United States, only 2,000 are fellows.
McLeod is a member of the USC School of Architecture’s Board of Councilors and is active in the USC Architecture Guild. She also is a past recipient of a Widney Alumni House Volunteer Award.
