Guangmao 'Forrest' Xu received a $5,000 prize as a merit award winner in the AIA|DC's Tritschler Prize Competition. The competition jury indicated that Xu's project – Anthenaeum Addition – "had a well-developed relationship between the old and the new. Your interior spaces were well proportioned with a clear expression of the structure. In addition, your floor plans were clear with a rational circulation. The jury also noted that your drawings were great."
The award was announced at the AIA DC spring party in May.
