Jury Comments

This project illustrates how a 35 year old building can receive a new and exuberant life. With a complete re-skinning of this building in response to contemporary materials as well as solar strategies the architects have been able to “replace” the previous building while maintaining the integrity of the structure of the existing building. Most notable are the vertical dynamic sun protection screens that have been placed on the West façade. These screens not only protect the building surface but also define protective entry points for the users and visitors. The new south sloping roof is sheathed in PV panels which provide 5% of the energy needs for the building.
