" What I really loved about this project was the planning, the way it fit on the site, the massing, the way it was opening and welcoming but also protected. You need it to be both and from that exterior view and the way we came in on the backside really felt enveloping to me. "
Nancy Blankfard, FAIA Principal | Architect HGA Architects and Engineers
" The design approach of the stepping portion of this project was exceptional in massing and detailing. The articulation of the facade screening and the sawtooth modular massing behind brings a repetitive composition that is delightfully tectonic. "
