Bowdoin in the Design Winner's Circle

Story posted November 18, 2002

Two Bowdoin College buildings have recently been honored for design excellence.

Cambridge 7 of Boston has been awarded the grand prize in the "Education Design Showcase" for its work on Searles Science Building. The award is given by College Planning & Management magazine. Bowdoin will receive a $1,000 award.

Thorne Dining Hall is among the winners of the 2002 Lumen Awards, honoring projects in lighting design. This non-competitive award, which spotlights a variety of the year's best designs, was listed in the October 2002 issue of LD On Architecture, a supplement to Lighting Dimensions. A photo of Thorne graces the pages of LD alongside such diverse projects as art museums, cruise ships, a Disneyland parking structure and the Jefferson Memorial! The architect for Thorne was Kallman McKinnel & Wood Architects, and the lighting designer was Kugler Tillotson Associates. The annual Lumen Awards are sponsored by the New York chapter of the Illuminating Engineering Society.
