Margaret Griffin, FAIA – Griffin Enright Architects

Mark McVay, AIA - AECOM

Mohamed Sharif, Associate AIA - Sharif, Lynch: Architecture

“…in general, we gravitated towards projects with strategic plan making that took advantage of existing conditions to create transformative spaces. Many of them are projects that strategically do a lot with a little, but all of them had a clear design idea that was executed with material finesse.”                          -Margaret Griffin, FAIA

The new types evoke a historic type without direct quotation and create a new campus where buildings are landscape constituents making new places from previously interstitial ones."
