Jury comments: The adaptive reuse and renovation of an old electric station is impressive at all levels. The architecture—and the remarkable architectural engineering—breathe new life into a once-defunct building and create smart, comfortable, and navigable spaces. The program demands multiple classrooms for very specialized nursing education, which makes it all the more praiseworthy.
