    The rectangular volume of Kroon Hall by Michael Hopkins wears one great roof, pitched up to a broadly curving ridgeline. This new home for Yale University's School of Forestry & Environmental Studies in New Haven, Connecticut, achieves both a welcoming form and a high level of sustainable design.

    Designed by Hopkins Architects of London, with Centerbrook Architects and Planners as executive architect, Kroon Hall is expected to earn a Platinum LEED certification.

    AIA MARYLAND DESIGN AWARDS

    More than 30 years ago, as an art student in Baltimore, George Holback would occasionally convince his brother, a police officer, to help him gain entry to the city's vacant American Brewery (then called the Wiessner Brewery).
