Local architecture firm KieranTimberlake has had one of its projects selected as a winner of the 2015 Institute Honor Awards for Architecture–one of the highest prizes given by the American Institute of Architects.

KieranTimberlake–who had a hand in designing Dilworth Park and the Central Delaware Master Plan–earned the prize for their design of Brockman Hall of Physics at Rice University.

However, another firm on the winning roster, New York-based Weiss/Manfredi, was selected for their design of the Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Penn (pictured above).
