WJE Awarded Preservation Design Award for the Antelope Valley Museum
October 17, 2011
The California Preservation Foundation has awarded WJE a Preservation Design Award for its work on the Antelope Valley Indian Museum, located in California's Mojave Desert. The museum, a historic one- and two-story wood-framed structure constructed in the late 1920s through the 1930s, was built by Howard Arden Edwards, who worked as a set designer in Hollywood and also dabbled in the collection of prehistoric and historic Native American artifacts. The project consisted of installation of new geothermal heat exchange wells, addition of insulation and a new HVAC system, and addition of structural guy-wire cables to strengthen this National Register structure. WJE served as the executive/lead architect and the structural engineer.
