It's a remarkable achievement for the zinc-walled little fortress that from the street suggests Darth Vader’s headquarters.
And is cozy as a prison inside.
In case anyone's wondering what the jury was thinking, the AIA posted a few of their comments on its website:
This building unfolds as it is experienced and is sublime in its stillness and detailing.
From the street, one is seduced by is [sic] secrecy and upon entering its crafted inner court, the project is revealed much like a poetry reading.
The manipulation of light through sectional explorations and the weaving of its limited material use through its interiors are resolved exceptionally well.
So that explains it.
I guess this means the PF won’t be taking my advice on a fix.
