For the fourth time since it opened in May 2007, Studzinski Recital Hall and Kanbar Auditorium have been honored with a design award.
The recital hall has won the 2008 Honor Award for Interior Architecture from the Boston Society of Architects.
According to the Boston Society of Architects, only five projects were selected to receive an Honor Award out of 80 interior architecture projects submitted.
Studzinski Recital Hall and Kanbar Auditorium opened after an 18-month renovation and preservation project that transformed the Curtis Pool into a state-of-the-art music performance and practice facility.
The $15 million project was designed by William Rawn Associates of Boston and was made possible through the generosity of Trustee John Studzinski '78 and Elliott Kanbar '56.
