Kyu Sung Woo (MUD '70) was awarded the Harleston Parker Medal by the Boston Society of Architects and the City of Boston. The annual award recognizes "the single most beautiful building or other structure" built in Boston within the past ten years. The Harvard University Graduate Student Housing building at 10 Akron Street was completed in 2008 with consideration for the specific goals of the university. “Every institution has a different mission,” he says. “It’s interesting and exciting to see how we relate those missions into different buildings. For example, all the dormitories we have done, none of them have the same unit plan or floor plan. It’s not just because of a site being rural or urban or suburban, but also, I think, each university has a different tradition and a different mission.”
