Architects Win Award for Trinity Admissions Building

  Admissions and Career Services Center

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the Philadelphia architectural firm that designed the Admissions and Career Services Center, has been recognized for its work on that project by the Building Stone Institute as a 2004 Tucker Design Award winner. Named in honor of the late Beverly R. Tucker, Jr., a past president of the institute, the Tucker Design Awards honor architectural firms that exhibit excellence in the concept, design, construction and use of natural stone. The awards include projects that have been completed in the last five years.

The Building Stone Institute, founded in 1919, is an international trade association whose members include the world’s leading natural stone quarries, dealers, installers, and restorers of all types of natural stone. The Tucker Design Awards were first presented in 1977.

Opened in 2001, the three-story, 31,000 square-foot Center is home to the Admissions, Financial Aid, and Career Services departments. At the time of the building’s dedication, principal design architect Peter Bohlin noted that, “Working closely with the College, we were able to carefully place this large and powerful building in the shadow of the great Trinity Chapel. We are pleased with the way the building sits in the landscape, forming a soft edge for the Chapel Quadrangle while meeting the College’s programmatic goals.” The building was completed at a total cost of $15 million.
