Award – Campus Planning
Award – Urban Design
Project name: UConn Downtown Hartford Campus
Project location: Hartford, CT
Firm name: Robert A.M. Stern
Jury comments: This project works as both a higher education plan and an urban move. Hartford was in need of a catalyst, and this may be it. The campus takes advantage of the existing building stock—in part this is a lovely adaptive reuse project—and reanimates the city beyond its structures. The UConn Downtown Hartford Campus demonstrates an inclusive approach to activating an urban campus.
