Todd Woodward was selected as the 2020 recipient of the Alan Greenberger Award

This award recognizes an AIA Philadelphia member or affiliate member for significant contributions and demonstrated commitment to the Collaborative’s mission. Todd’s past service as an esteemed board member, leading the organization as a co-chair, currently serving on the Design Services, Design Grant Review and Design Grant Selection Committees and as an Advisory Council member, and long-term volunteer made him an exemplary awardee.  Todd’s firm, SMP Architects, is in our Volunteer Hall of Fame for providing 1500+ pro bono hours.  

As the co-author of Leverage celebrating our 20th Anniversary and over a decade of work on our design teams, Todd met the second criterion for the award of encouraging participation from AIA membership on Collaborative programs. 

Volunteers like Todd have helped us impact the communities in Philadelphia that need it most.
