The publisher of Traditional Building and Period Homes magazines and the producer of the Traditional Building Conference Series announced today that Robert A.M. Stern Architects' two new residential colleges at Yale University will be honored with a 2018 Palladio Award.

"This might be the most competitive contest we've seen in the seventeen years we have produced the Palladio Awards Program," said Martha McDonald, Editor of Traditional Building.

Benjamin Franklin College and Pauli Murray College, Yale's first new residential colleges in fifty years, housing 452 students each on a triangular 6.2-acre site, carry forward the Collegiate Gothic style established by architect James Gamble Rogers between the two world wars. RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern, Graham S. Wyatt, and Melissa DelVecchio led the design effort. For more information about the new colleges, please click here.

Sponsored by Traditional Building, Period Homes, and the Traditional Building Conference, the Palladio Awards honor outstanding achievement in traditional design. The event recognizes both individual designers and design teams whose work enhances the beauty and humane qualities of the built environment. Through creative interpretation or adaptation of design principles, the program celebrates techniques developed through 2,500 years of Western architectural tradition. The Palladio Awards are the first and only national awards program for residential and commercial/institutional projects which demonstrate excellence in traditional design.
