Manuel Zeitlin recently was named the 2018 “Distinguished Alumni in Practice” by Boston Architectural College.

The award is given by the college to an alumnus who has made a significant impact in the design community while promoting and improving the design profession through their leadership. The honor recognizes Zeitlin’s decades of leadership as an architect in Nashville, as well as his successes in mentoring emerging members of the design community.

The award recognizes how Zeitlin’s influence extends beyond his firm’s work as well. Many former employees from the firm’s almost 40 year history have gone on to start their own firms, and Zeitgeist has been a vibrant focal point of Nashville art and performance since its founding in the mid-90s.
