DUC architects win award for design

Tsoi/Kobus & Associates Inc., the Cambridge, Mass., architecture firm that designed the Danforth University Center, has received a 2009 Palladio Award for its work in creation of WUSTL’s new student center that opened last August.

The Danforth University Center won the “New Design and Construction — More than 30,000 Square Feet” award in the “Commercial, Institutional and Public Projects” category of the Palladio Awards program.

The Palladio Awards honor outstanding achievement in traditional design. The awards were named in honor of Andrea Palladio, the Renaissance architect who created modern architecture for his time while using models from the past for inspiration and guidance.
