Jury comments:
This strong, risk taking tower is adventuresome for Seattle. It raises the bar in ambition for an area of Seattle, the Denny Regrade. The jury really hopes that this kind of thinking will be implemented to create a new species of skyscraper over the city. The tower has lots of energy and movement and is dynamic.

Jury comments:
Through a simple set of well detailed buildings in a stunning landscape, the architect has created a place. Nothing is extravagant; everything has a reason and becomes part of the landscape.
