Yale’s Kroon Hall was rightfully submitted for the 2012 World Architecture News Awards. As an entry in the Engineering category, the LEED® Platinum-certified home of Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, was designed to be a model for sustainability, in support of the school’s mission. The building’s form was designed to take full advantage of passive, low-energy systems. Oriented east to west along the sun’s path, Kroon Hall’s exposed thermal mass, deep-set windows, and external shading control solar heat gain. I can’t help but find this design impressive, and consider it a profound architectural achievement. I look forward to a bold future of design that not only satisfies the needs of the client, but also the long term needs of us all.
