“The interwoven building and landscaped courtyards, terraces, and lawns; the beauty of timber structure and spaces; and the excitement of performing arts and workshop facilities will make this newest campus residential community a destination and a magnet,”
- Andrea P. Leers, FAIA, Principal, Leers Weinzapfel Associates
