  1. The RISD residence hall on College Hill was actually a remarkably sensitive solution to a difficult, hilly site by virtue of its rather masterful terracing of forms. The addition by William Warner, which obscures the sculptural aspect of the original by infill along the curve of Waterman Street, was an unfortunate accretion.
