Jury comments: The Dearborn Academy is a celebration of learning and opportunity. Placed in a quintessential Boston neighborhood, it sets up an urbanistic dialogue of diverse angles and setbacks familiar to its neighbors and inviting of approach. Inside, the school is a window to the world, bringing natural light in and awarding outward views that ultimately invite the city back into its core. In an audacious architectural move that transforms a void into a beautiful magnet, the school’s heart is a place of community, engagement and exchange. Dearborn is a forward-looking gift to its students and a delightful addition to the city fabric.
