Kansas University architecture professor Dan Rockhill has been honored as a finalist for an award from the Smithsonian Institution's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
Rockhill was recognized for his work with Studio 804 and Rockhill and Associates. Studio 804 is a design studio for KU students in which they build affordable, prefabricated housing in neglected neighborhoods.
Rockhill and Associates is the partnership between Rockhill and Lawrence architect David Sain known for projects that focus on environmental sustainability and historic preservation.
The Cooper-Hewitt noted that "in both roles, Rockhill has been dedicated to sustainable, modestly scaled building, creating structures that connect the inhabitant with their environment."
Rockhill's works have appeared in hundreds of publications around the world.
