Honor Award

Architecture

Stanford’s Central Energy Facility building leverages innovative functionality in an engagingly legible utilitarian structure to express the vision and values of the university. Transparent, integrated spaces center on massive thermal tanks. Shaded by a photovoltaic trellis, the campus-facing facade displays vibrant high-performance engineered systems to a community committed to sustainability.

The jury remarked that this is an incredibly accomplished project that elegantly accommodates a complicated interplay of seemingly disparate programs. The design of this campus energy facility combines passive and active systems for education and administration spaces with design elements that make sustainability, efficiency, flexibility, and resiliency interesting and attractive. The clearly functional elements of the facility are celebrated as central features that make them as intriguing as they are pragmatic and informative.
