Here are some honors and awards Don Hershey received in his life. More will be added as we get them.
Design Award from the Rochester Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (from the Times-Union, Rochester, NY, Oct.13, 1980)
Don Hershey, 76, known for his custom residences, received the distinguished architect award. His philosophy, said AIA President John Unger, is, “Build a house around your client’s idiosyncrasies and not your own.” Hershey, who was designing solar and modular homes back in 1945, said, “Young fellas, try out your designs on your wife. If you can design for her, you can design for anyone.”
