Firm behind the UD Bookstore recognized at design awards event
3:11 p.m., Oct. 24, 2012--DIGSAU, the architecture firm that designed the University of Delaware Bookstore, was recently recognized at the AIA Philadelphia 2012 Awards for Design Excellence event.
At a ceremony held on Wednesday, Oct. 10, DIGSAU was presented with a Merit Award for the building that houses the University of Delaware Bookstore and UD’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
Underdogs no more
The bookstore’s design, which one judge called “a unique redefinition of the normal retail experience,” was selected for the award out of hundreds of submissions from around the world.
DIGSAU’s design came to fruition when the UD bookstore opened for business in August 2011.
