A profile on the firm's web site in 2012 stated of Hacker: "His work has largely dealt with public institutions; libraries, schools, museums, theaters and places of public assembly. To them he has brought both artistic expression and a keen sensitivity to the nature of public use. His buildings have an understated dignity based on the beauty of material and carefully crafted construction. His work is noted for its rigorously organized plans and its expressive use of structure, material and abundant natural light." (See "Thom Hacker,"Accessed 01/12/2012.)
