Connection Failure The American Institute of Architects - Replace

Jury Comments

Mary Guzowski: The reuse of the neighborhood and partial reuse of the building is the compelling story in this project. There are so many buildings that need to be renovated—this one sets a great example.

Joshua Aidlin: Dramatically dropping electricity usage and therefore cost.

Lauren Yarmuth: The adaptive reuse with this project was killer. The courtyard is strong; the use of daylight is spectacular; reclaimed wood used throughout the building details. It’s a smart example of how to deal with an unattractive existing building waiting to be helped.

Kevin Kampschroer: The daylighting is everywhere, but diffused, so you aren’t causing glare. It’s a beautiful light to be in with the way it is reflecting. 87% of the materials from existing site reused on the new site, which is not easy, and really focusing on what you can do.

Our thanks to the ENERGY STAR program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and to the U.S. Department of Energy, and to BuildingGreen, Inc. for hosting the submission and judging forms.
