Clemson’s Lee III wins National Architecture Award

Lee III, the 55,000-square-foot addition to Clemson’s Lee Hall, has won a national award for design achievement from the American Institute of Architects. The award, one of only 11 given this year, was announced Friday in the American Institute of Architects’ Architect magazine.  Lee III, “the building that teaches”, was dedicated in April 2012. Designed to be zero-energy ready, the building has proven to be by far the most energy-efficient building in the Clemson University system.  Lee Hall is an academic building that houses programs in architecture, art, city and regional planning, construction science and management, landscape architecture and real estate development, all in the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities.
