In addition to Mlyniec’s work with students and alumni, he was also recognized for his role in leading the architectural development of the Law Center’s campus and efforts to keep alumni, main campus colleagues, and the Washington community apprised of that development through construction blogs, campus-wide presentations and his book, Construction Notes: Transforming a Campus in Washington, D.C.
