Both the Adams Street Branch Library and MIT Site 4 are nominated for the 2022 Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize (MCHAP).

With sensitivity and intelligence, these projects achieve a formal, material, social, and environmental synergy. They realize opportunities for architecture— understood through both what architecture is, as a physical structure, and what it does, in the experiences and connections it creates.”
