On Sept. 19, the Connecticut Chapter of the American Institute of Architects awarded Wesleyan’s 41 Wyllys Avenue project with a 2012 Design Award in the Merit category. Newman Architects of New Haven, Conn. oversaw the building’s redesign.

41 Wyllys Avenue, formerly a squash facility, is the new home of the College of Letters, Art History Department and the Wesleyan Career Center. This historic building boasts beautiful new spaces enhanced with light, color and technology.

The AIA Connecticut Design Awards celebrate the the accomplishments of Connecticut architects and the excellence of Connecticut architectural projects. An awards ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 3.
