Vladimir Krstic, professor of architecture in the College of Architecture, Planning & Design, has been awarded the TreanorHL Faculty Award for 2020. This award recognizes outstanding efforts by faculty that promote the design profession in the education of our students.

He has taught and lectured nationally and internationally. His teaching and research are focused on urban and architectural design and design theory. Krstic is one of the leading experts on Japanese contemporary architecture and urbanism and has extensively published on the subject.
