Project name: Mill River Park, Whittingham Discovery Center
Project location: Stamford, Connecticut
Firm name: JCJ Architecture
Jury comments: This is one of the most unique visitor centers we’ve ever seen. We love that the building becomes the site and the site becomes the building. A diversity of activities is made possible by the sloping structure, which invites visitors to engage with the project across four seasons. From lounging, to sledding, to taking in performances, the Whittingham Discovery Center’s integrated architecture and landscape beckon to its community, a true gathering place.
