Lindner College of Business receives 2021 American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum

Honor depicted as the 'nation’s highest public award for new architecture and urban planning'

The University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business recently garnered a 2021 American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum, an international museum of architecture and design.

Described as the “nation’s highest public award for new architecture and urban planning," winners are recognized as the foremost new architecture designed and constructed by American architects and by international architects with offices in the U.S.

In its profile of Carl H. Lindner Hall, the Chicago Athenaeum wrote that the “design resonates with and reinforces the University of Cincinnati’s masterplan, and aims to create a central meeting place and an open and inviting hub on campus — for students, faculty, and visitors alike.”

The "new" Lindner Hall — designed by internationally renowned Henning Larsen Architects, with Cincinnati-based KZF Design as the architect of record and Turner Construction Co. overseeing construction — officially opened in September 2019. This is another award for Lindner, which achieved Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) recognition from the U.S. Green Building Council earlier this year.
