This submission was recognized by the jury primarily for its sensible site and unit planning. The site plan organized the housing groups into blocks, some at higher, and some at lower densities, thereby, treeing some of the ground plane for collective landscaped open space. A vehicular access route, more extensive than that of Submission 5, shortened walking distances to the farthest units. As for the unit planning, it was simple and straightforward, emphasizing a consistent southern orientation and cross-ventilation. The jury had reservations about the elaborate roof systems which upon examination, turned out not to have any significant role in energy conservation, but which seemed very costly. Then too, the complicated access to some of the units in the higher buildings provoked concerns.
