A practicing architect, Professor Milovanovic-Bertram earned a design excellence award from the Austin Design Commission and a Citation from the Austin Chapter AIA for the Breed Hardware Store. Milovanovic-Bertram's initial research into the influence of an architect's design philosophy on their practice was supported by a Mike Hogg Endowment.
