Michael Taylor (MT): Tod and Billie, what attracted you to this commission?

Tod Williams (TW): You! (laughs) We heard wonderful things about you from Philadelphia and that something new was going to happen up at Dartmouth. We both went to Ivy League schools and are incredibly interested in art, so we had been to the Hood and seen its treasures and its amazing location.
