The sounds of metal clanged, and wheels rolled over mounds of dirt, as at least a hundred workers labored on the otherwise quiet morning at the construction site of an office building.

“Upon arrival from the parking garage, visitors encounter a butterﬂy theme embodied in a folded roof and a folded facade,” John Marx, chief artistic officer at Form4, explained in his application for this award. “Folding is the leitmotif of this project.”
