 Jury Comments:
This small academic building utilizes a simple, direct organization to connect the work to its bucolic site. The material palette is reductive and refined, with consistent detailing inside and out. The result is a sophisticated, mature work that will become better with age.

TheBox

Jury Comments:

This residence employs a simple site strategy that is clearly communicated and executed. The relationship of the larger house to the small, screen pavilion frames views out into the site. The interior volume of the home is simple, but surprising with a direct use of a limited number of materials.

GrOwING GREEN

Jury Comments:

This deployable green house is a modest and direct construction containing a mobile instructional space. The simple, lightweight steel frame is repeated to create a volume apparently derived from its functional program. Nothing more than it needed to be.

PD6

Jury Comments:

Though entered as an adaptive reuse, this project was the strongest interior as well. A small number of elements (red doors, wood ceiling panels, white walls) are employed to create spaces that elevate the program – a public defender’s agency. The new systems are clearly articulated and juxtaposed with the historic shell that contains them.

Jury Comments:

This project lovingly restores a series of public spaces lost and hidden by years of ill-conceived renovations. The preservation component of the project was thoroughly researched and painstakingly executed - recapturing the grandeur of this academic building. The work was very clearly communicated allowing the extent of the renovation to be completely understood.

RP7

Jury Comments:

This small commercial building is expressed as a simple, wood frame pavilion placed upon a masonry plinth. This strategy allows the lower level bank to appear (appropriately) secure, while allowing the upper level office space to be airy and filled with daylight. The scale of the building appears to complement the neighborhood without copying the neighbors.

Eiteljorg2

Jury Comments:

The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art succeeds in the transformation of the visitor experience from being in a Midwestern city to that of being among American Indian art, culture and history. This experience begins during the approach to the museum, during the visit and upon departure. The exterior design and materials selection of the museum are decidedly unique within the downtown mile square. This is magnified by the context of the museum being sited along the repurposed Erie canal and in the White River Park.
