The National Building Museum will recognize Kohler Co., and the late Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., as the recipient of the 2023 Honor Award, for inspiring us all to live our best lives, for pushing the boundaries of design, and for being on the forefront of innovative solutions that accelerate change and create a better tomorrow.

Founded in 1873, Kohler’s global brand has been making history with its bold designs and experiences, daring to imagine the impossible, and then ensuring that is achieved through the focus on a better planet, better communities and better lives. The corporation and each of its associates have the mission of contributing to a higher level of gracious living for those touched by their products and services. Gracious living is marked by qualities of charm, good taste, and generosity of spirit. It is further shaped by self-fulfillment and the enhancement of nature.

Throughout the past three decades, the Gala has become one of the most anticipated events in the nation’s capital. Its enduring appeal is the meaningful connections attendees make with each other—from nationally recognized leaders in the building industries to power players in greater Washington’s business community.
