Ennead's Vassar College Bridge for Laboratory Sciences received 2017 AIANY COTE Merit Award.

The Jury commended the building for its "strong connection to its site, adjacent to a wetland corridor, including its sensitive scale of design and massing, and visual linkages. They also noted that the team integrated bird safety into the façade design, important in the context of the location. The building demonstrates excellent water reduction initiatives: rainwater harvesting leads to an 84% reduction in water use for outdoor irrigation, and the design includes 100% storm water management."
