Henry Moss to Receive 2015 Codman Award for Lifetime Achievement in Preservation

The Hayden Building
The award acknowledges Henry’s many years of professional and volunteer work in Boston’s preservation community through research, technical expertise and practice.  Henry is a principal at the architectural firm Bruner/Cott, planning and designing adaptive reuse projects and restoration of historic structures.   He previously worked in historic preservation and public housing renovation in England, and worked for HBI on a variety of projects, most notably the restoration of HH Richardson’s Hayden Building in Chinatown. 

Henry has organized intensive technical workshops for architects and contractors on historic building subjects through the Boston Society of Architects since 1986 and was for many years chair of the BSA's Historic Resources Committee.  Since 1997, he has been studying and advocating for preservation of post-World War II buildings and landscapes. 

Henry has been a valued member of HBI’s Board of Directors for 17 years and chairs the board’s Project Review Committee.  He has also served on the Preservation Alliance’s board and on the board of the Old South Meetinghouse where he was Architect of the Fabric.

“It’s wonderful to see someone with Henry’s commitment to preservation and achievements in the field given the highest honor in Boston’s preservation community,” said Kathy Kottaridis, HBI’s Executive Director.  “No one expects it less or deserves it more.  We’re very proud of Henry Moss and very grateful for the collegiality and contributions he has brought to preservation in Boston.”

The Codman Lifetime Achievement Award is particularly meaningful to HBI because it is named for the founder of Historic Boston Inc., John Codman, who brought together a distinguished group of Bostonians in 1960 as Historic Boston Incorporated to save and restore the Old Corner Bookstore.

Congratulations Henry!
