Marie Zawistowski will be recognized with Society Honors at the Visions for Architecture gala on Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, at the Jefferson Hotel. Society Honors are bestowed upon organizations or citizens who have inspired, influenced, or complemented architecture or the architecture profession in Virginia through an allied profession, research, education, planning, legislation, journalism, the arts, or crafts.

In 2008 Marie Zawistowski joined the faculty at Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture + Design, where she co-teaches with Keith Zawistowski. In addition to teaching Professional Practice, Building Analysis, and Building Assemblies, they founded the design/buildLAB. The design/buildLAB is a project-based, experiential-learning program focused on the research, development and implementation of innovative construction methods and architectural designs. Students collaborate with local communities and industry experts to conceive and realize built projects that are both educational and charitable in nature. The aspiration of the innovative program is to reinforce the knowledge and skills necessary to the successful and meaningful practice of architecture by removing the boundaries between academy and professional practice. For their extraordinary joint efforts to advance the art and science of architectural education, the Society presents Marie Zawistowski with Society Honors and also recognizes Keith Zawistowski with the Award for Distinguished Achievement.
