It is with honor and excitement that we accept the 2023 People’s Choice Award from AIA Silicon Valley for the Vietnamese American Service Center (VASC). Aedis’ former President, the late Thang Do’s vision was unwavering, and uncompromising during this project’s design and this award tells us his efforts were worth it. Our design partner, Hawley Peterson Snyder Architecture/Interiors/Planning was a truly vital and integral part of the design process. We are grateful to the County of Santa Clara Facilities and Fleet Department for their leadership, trust, and support, and for the insight and foresight of the Board of Supervisors for identifying a need and establishing this program, which has turned out to be wildly successful, beyond even the most optimistic dreams. The VASC project is making a #PositiveLastingImpact on the Vietnamese-American Community for generations to come!
