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.
