Jury Citation:
A silver mesh skin tightly wraps a compact pattern of courtyards and high, bright workspaces. Inside, a complex range of administration, communications and craft-training spaces achieve coherence through rigorous control of materials, volume and passive environmental design. A central promenade through the building encourages legibility and interaction culminating in the memorable roof garden and iconic renewable-energy tower in its generous integration of different types of work, this building achieves a rare and enviable democracy.
