The Rudy Bruner Award Digital Archive (RBADA) provides access to award winning and fully documented urban design case studies. Intended as a resource for architecture students and practitioners as they study precedents in urban design, the Archive contains projects from 1987 to the present that have received the prestigious Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence. The Bruner Awards seek to encourage and recognize innovative thinking and excellence in urban design achieved through community collaboration.
The Archive was initiated in 1998 by the University at Buffalo Libraries in cooperation with the Bruner Foundation and the Urban Design Project of the School of Architecture and Planning. Original grant funding was provided by the Library Services and Technology Act Grant (awarded to the Western New York Library Resources Council by the State Education Department of the University of the State of New York) and a grant from the Bruner Foundation.
