This design demonstrates the power of a simple generative idea. The often misused curvilinear wall, in this case, plays a subtle role of creating a sense of relaxation in the carefully edited space. Further it delineates the boundary between front and back of house. The design succeeds in creating a relaxing ethereal experience.
— Jury Comments

A press release issued by AIA Kentucky described the judging process:

The jury was directed to evaluate each project based on the success with which the project met its own individual requirements.  In its deliberations, the jury considered energy efficiency and accessibility to persons with disabilities, as well as functional utility, economy, environmental harmony and attention to the social concerns of the profession.  In addition, consideration was given to how the project’s design addressed AIA’s 10 Principles of Livable Communities. 

Each was weighed individually, not in comparison with one another, and the jury was free to select as many or as few projects as it determined to be worthy of recognition. Projects selected were deemed to have successfully met the scope of challenges with which the architect was presented.

We also wish to extend congratulations to our fellow awardees: 

  • K. Norman Berry Associates & wHY Architecture for the Speed Art Museum Expansion
  • de Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop for the Knoxville Botanical Garden & Arboretum Visitor Pavilion
  • Architectural Artisans for the Gilbert Residence.
