This is the question that Dean Lou Goodman, of the American University School of International Service team, asked William McDonough + Partners, design architects, and architect of record Quinn Evans Architects, as they collectively began a journey toward a new building for the Washington, DC, campus.

Now that facility is filled with SIS students, and it has be submitted for consideration for a World Architecture News award.
