STREB’s 2020 Action Maverick Award Recipient:

A visionary architect whose firm REX consistently challenges and advances building typologies, and promotes the agency of architecture.

STREB’s Action Maverick Award Benefit celebrates the heroes who inspire us, and serves as our signature fundraising event, helping us to pursue our mission and sustain our entire organization. Funds raised support Elizabeth Streb’s groundbreaking work through the STREB Extreme Action Company’s performances, which take place at our home in Brooklyn and around the world; our educational partnerships and community engagement programs that inspire and empower the Action Heroes and leaders of tomorrow; and, it ensures accessibility by supporting our scholarship and ticket subsidy programs.

You can still contribute to our DARING BEYOND FUND which we launched at this year’s event in lieu of our traditional paddle raise.
