Athletic Business features Roberts Pavilion, Facility of Merit 2017

John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects' Roberts Pavilion at Claremont McKenna College was selected as one of of this year's Facilities of Merit by Athletic Business, and earned its spot as the cover feature on this month's publication. The winners will be celebrated at a reception at the this year's AB Show in Orlando.  Judges were impressed with the visual relationships between the interior and exterior of the building, and the relationship between the building's facades. Judges commented:

"The design concept successfully carries through from the exterior to the interior. A compact and efficient plan is maximized with an expressive facade, interior forms and skylights that deliver light deep into the building." — Kalman Nagy
"Interesting solution of window orientation to provide natural light as much as possible without impacting energy use. Fantastic interior space!" — Lynn Reda
"Really cool and dynamic building! The main lobby interior is striking and full of natural light. The building program configuration and connection to the exterior is exceptional. This is a place you want to exercise and spend time in." — Stephen Sefton
