Jury comments: Creative reinterpretation of traditional Collegiate vernacular.... It succeeds both as a single building and as a part of the larger campus plan.... There is a wonderful contrast of scale between the communal elements and the fabric of the residential areas.... Elegant use of stone: Both the scale and patterning have been thoroughly studied and are exquisite.
