Allen has been instrumental in the design of TKWA’s many award-winning buildings, including two national AIA COTE Top Ten Green Building projects - the Leopold Legacy Center in Baraboo, Wisconsin, and the First Unitarian Society Meeting House Addition in Madison, Wisconsin. TKWA also received the national ‘Wright Spirit Award’ from the Frank Lloyd Building Conservancy for their sensitive addition to Wright’s National Historic Landmark Unitarian Meeting House. Other notable TKWA projects include the Milwaukee Public Market, the Iron Horse Hotel, the Restoration and Addition to the Wright Designed Adelman House, the Growing Power Vertical Farm, the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center (first LEED Gold new building in Wisconsin) and the ZhongGuanCun Elementary School No. 3 in Beijing, China.
