The Cesar Chavez Educational Center is one of the winners of California's 2004 Savings By Design Energy Efficiency Integration Awards Competition for their integration of energy efficiency with outstanding architectural design.

They particularly noted the effort to align the classrooms on a north/south axis for maximum use of daylighting despite the site's orientation--and the delightful building forms that resulted from this effort.
