"The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is the most complete lab project the Jury has ever seen. It integrates a very complex building type completely with a very tight site — the courtyards, the entries, the views — everything seems to fit. It also has a definite humanistic touch. The other important aspect is the mechanical systems: the interstitial application and the creative use of interstitial spaces for interaction areas added a layer to the project that made it head and shoulders above other projects we saw."
