IrvLofts 6

 Jury Comments:
This project uses economical materials judiciously and successfully. The minimalist language makes for striking architecture that does not look like affordable housing; the same reductivist approach is beautifully expressed in the highly disciplined floor plans as well. Generous expanses of glazing open up the interiors, making spaces feel larger than they are, and accent colors provide a vibrancy to the design both inside and out.

Jury Comments:

The exterior massing and facades of this project are beautifully composed, integrating a simple palette of stone, masonry, glass and metal, breaking down the scale of the building artfully. The jury found the interiors to be exceptional as well, especially the atrium, with its hanging monumental stair expanses of glass, and crisply organized ceilings that incorporate natural light, mechanical systems, lighting and structure.

IUHodgeHall UndergradCenter

Jury Comments:

This project sensitively reinterprets its campus’s traditional collegiate gothic language. In so doing, it successfully ties together the mid-century modern complex of which it is a part with the traditional campus core. Stone, metal and glass exteriors are beautifully and subtly composed in a delicate balance that is contemporary while clearly responding to context. This is carried into warm interiors, with well-articulated detailing, and generous natural light.

Hinge03

Jury Comments:

This project responds beautifully to its urban context, breaking down in scale to address the street. The sense of layering of materials and massing, and the detail in the masonry further address human scale and enhance the pedestrian experience. We enjoyed the way in which the hinge metaphor threads its way through the project in a variety of scales and architectural devices.

purdue 8568

Jury Comments:

This project uses interstitial space as its form-giver, transforming what was previously a comparatively somber, windowless complex into an active, open, transparent public place. Exterior massing is striking and simple, belying the vibrant complexity of the open interiors. The visual connectivity between interior spaces provides for an exciting, high-energy environment.

krachandthirdstreet

Jury Comments:

The primary strength of this project is in its restraint, which lends a sense of understated timelessness to the design. The exterior palette is sensitive to context in both materials and scale. The subtle changes in plane lend an understated playfulness to the massing, with highly animated atriums tying the interiors and the two buildings together.

CityFarmhouse

Jury Comments:

The taut restraint exhibited in the design of this project transforms the farmhouse vernacular into a contemporary residential icon for the community. The simple, well-balanced composition, culminating in a corner-wrapping porch stepping down to grade is exceptional. Interiors are surprisingly open and light. Though obviously painstakingly designed, this project appears completely un-self-conscious and rooted in authenticity.

LEEFPavilion 

Jury Comments:

The craft and subtlety of this small pavilion lends it a more commanding presence than its scale would suggest. From the “gunstock” profile of the columns to the joinery of the timber members, the jury was impressed with every detail and choice made in the design of this structure. The decision to orient the building along the summer solstice, and to situate it with its back to the approach, a simple swath of mown meadow, was poetic.

IURotaryBuilding 

Jury Comments:

It took the jury some time to appreciate this subtle project. By judiciously reconfiguring the floor plans, the architects dramatically opened up circulation, bringing natural light deep inside the interior. Interventions, such as stairs and glass enclosed study rooms work in clear counterpoint to the original architecture and significantly enliven it. Restoring the front porch and terrace above also showed great respect for the original architects’ design.

ColumbusNorthHS 

Jury Comments:

By flipping the building entry to the opposite side, and placing additions strategically, the architects were able to completely transform this school while still fully utilizing its existing spaces. A restrained interior color palette, so rarely seen in schools, and exposed original waffle slabs, open up the interiors, providing an appropriate backdrop to the activity within. The reinterpretation of the exterior classroom wing elevation is also a masterful touch.

Jury Comments:

This was a beautiful presentation, and was consistent with the attention to detail, and vibrant color and texture present throughout the design. The jury appreciated the process drawings, and was taken with the imaginative use of the client’s products in the design. Floating ceilings simultaneously celebrate building systems, filter natural light, and define spaces in a minimal, interesting way. This looked to us like a wonderful place to work.

Jury Comments:

This project was also very well presented, beginning and ending with contextual photos that helped the jury appreciate the importance of the immediate environs. A taut, industrial aesthetic is judiciously deployed, complementing the earlier industrial architecture, while tastefully accenting the client’s products. The result is a space that feels exciting, contemporary and authentic.

TheHaitiBlock 

Jury Comments:

It was a pleasure for the jury to be able to give the Honor award to this non-traditional project. It is a profound example of applying the architect’s knowledge and skills to the task of providing a practical, simple, sustainable solution to a catastrophic problem: literally, a building block for rebuilding Haiti. The painstaking, careful research and trial-and-error development of what turned out to be a surprising, creative solution was fascinating to see. We look forward to seeing the application of the Haiti-Block and other sustainable solutions like it in the years to come.

Jury Comments:

As architects, the jury was gratified to see how significantly a reclaimed building, once grand yet having fallen into staggering disrepair, could again serve as a vibrant part of the cultural revitalization of a major urban core. Through a process of restoration and significant, yet sensitive, reconfiguration the architects were able to create an icon that perfectly serves its contemporary purpose. Yet in every way, and for the past twenty five years, it reminds its audience of the timeless value of a community’s cultural heritage, and the everlasting value of its historic architectural heritage.
