Citation: Transformation – Higher Ed Education Facilities
Project name: The Richard A. & Susan F. Smith Campus Center
Project location: Cambridge, MA
Firm name: Hopkins Architects with Bruner/Cott
Jury comments: This is what adaptive reuse should be. A great but difficult Sert building is transformed by warm, welcoming interior spaces and an inviting ground level that gives way to the street and gracefully receives visitors. The student center is a true hub for this urban university’s extended community and its visitors.
