Green Building Councils LEED Building Rating System — were won under Eizenberg’s direction at KEA. Also, Julie Eizenberg was honored in May 2004 by the Cityof West Hollywood and the Association of Women in Architecture at the Plummer Park Community Center commending her accomplishments and contributions to architecture and the community.
