About the Tim Anderson

NH&RA created the “Timmy Awards“ as a tribute to Boston architect and preservation advocate J. Timothy Anderson. “Anderson was a singular figure in the preservation industry pioneering the adaptive reuse of historic buildings,” said Peter Bell, Executive Director of the National Housing & Rehabilitation Association and a close personal friend of Anderson’s. His legacy includes numerous Boston area projects as well as the seminal study that helped launch preservation efforts in the art deco South Beach district of Miami Beach in the late “˜70s.
