Connecticut College’s Athey Center for Performance and Research received a 2022 Merit Award from AIA Connecticut’s Design Awards in the category of Commercial, Industrial, Educational, and Multi-Family Residential Design (over 25,000sf). The AIA Connecticut Design Awards recognize design excellence of built and unbuilt work in Connecticut, or by Connecticut-based firms.

The objective of the renovation was to promote “pioneering artistic production and research, attract world-renowned artists-in-residence, and offer renewed spaces for community engagement.” The transformation maintained the building’s historic envelope and character while providing a new center for creative research and performance.
