Lewis Center for the Arts Receives International Architecture Award

With the 2018 awards season underway, BNIM has received recognition from a prestigious international awards program.

The Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University was selected by a distinguished jury of Turkish architects as a recipient of an International Architecture Award from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

Completed in collaboration with Steven Holl Architects, the Lewis Center is a striking gateway building on the historic Princeton University campus. It houses performance and teaching spaces for programs in Theater and Dance, the Department of Music, and the Fellows in the Creative and Performing Arts.

The International Architecture Awards are the highest and most prestigious distinguished building award program that honors new and cutting-edge design worldwide. Members of the jury included Melike Yetim, Serkan Cakit, Elif Simge Fettahoglu, M. Yigit Ersu, Zeynep Tumertekin, and Alper Aytac.  

The Lewis Center joins the Visual Arts Building at the University of Iowa (with Steven Holl Architects) as a recipient of the venerable award.
