DuPont to be honored for building and design achievements

The National Building Museum (NBM) has announced plans to present its prestigious annual Honor Award in 2002 to DuPont in recognition of the profound impact the company's inventions and scientific achievements have had on the building and design industries.

DuPont Chairman and CEO Chad Holliday will accept the award before an anticipated audience of nearly 1,000 cultural, corporate, building industry and political leaders. The black-tie gala will be held on April 11 in the landmark Great Hall of the NBM (pictured) in Washington, D.C.

"DuPont has a two-century history of turning scientific discoveries into products that make a real difference in our daily lives," said Museum President Susan Henshaw Jones. "The National Building Museum is privileged to salute DuPont for its inventive products that directly influence the construction and design process in the building industry."

Many aspects of modern construction and building design are influenced by the inventions and products developed by DuPont. Products such as DuPont™ Kevlar® brand fiber and DuPont™ Butacite® laminated glass make buildings safer, more durable and more efficient. In addition, the Honor Award pays tribute to products and inventions that enhance office and home design. Many of the company's products, such as DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces and DuPont™ Tyvek® brand protective material have set new standards for residential applications.

The NBM's Honor Award recognizes individuals and companies that have made significant contributions in the fields of architecture, planning, construction and building. In receiving the award, DuPont joins such past recipients as Michael Eisner and The Walt Disney Company, the Rockefeller and Pritzker families, the IBM Corporation, U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, former National Gallery Director J. Carter Brown and Lady Bird Johnson. The award gala will benefit exhibition and education programs of the NBM, the only public institution in America devoted exclusively to examining and interpreting American achievements in building.
