Project name: MASS MoCA Building 6
Project location: North Adams, MA
Firm name: Bruner/Cott
Jury comments: The jury admired the thought and restraint exercised in this adaptive reuse project. With rich historic building stock like this, it might seem impossible to fail—assuming the architect makes the right moves. The MASS MoCA Building 6 architect made those moves and then some, applying just the right amount of design to a building that acts like a baseline for its contents.
