David Lee and his late partner, Stull and Lee founder Don Stull, are 2022 recipients of the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) Alumni Award. The award, which was founded and led by the GSD Alumni Council, recognizes and celebrates "the diversity, leadership, range and impact of GSD alumni within their communities and across their areas of practice."
David wrote: "Don was a friend and mentor and a truly exceptional leader and pioneer as a Black man in a predominantly White profession, having established our award-winning architecture, urban design, and planning firm in 1966. After starting with the firm while still in grad school in 1969, I became a named partner in 1983. I was pleased to take the helm of Stull and Lee, Inc. as president after Don's retirement in 2013, continuing to grow our portfolio of urban design and architecture projects around the country.
I am truly grateful for the many personal and professional relationships made during my years as a GSD student and adjunct faculty member. My GSD experiences were priceless and I appreciate the support and encouragement of family and friends through the years!"
