The Wisconsin chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) awarded a first place honor in the category of educational buildings to Potter Lawson for their design of the Meat Science and Animal Biologics Discovery Building.
“A lot of talented individuals dedicated to the vision of the building and program were involved with this project,” said Jeff Sindelar, professor of animal and dairy sciences and Extension meat specialist. “They worked diligently to create a world-class facility that embodies the forward thinking of UW–Madison to build functional, inspirational, and remarkable buildings. The project team is very excited to see the building being recognized with this award.“
This annual award program honors innovative solutions and the outstanding design of IIDA member firms in Wisconsin. Selected projects successfully address design challenges and respond to client needs, demonstrate successful incorporation of materials and interior finishes into the overall design, use design elements including architectural details, lighting, and furnishings to appropriately support the design concept, represent innovation and originality, as well as incorporate a clear design concept throughout the overall project.
Rebecca Prochaska, a partner at Potter Lawson, said, “As a leading Wisconsin design firm, we’re honored to accept this award and thank the State of Wisconsin and UW-Madison campus for placing your trust in Potter Lawson for this award-winning project!”
