We were once again awarded for the Fraunhofer Offices project in Oporto. The prize was announced by the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, who chose the project as the winner of the 2016 Green GOOD DESIGN™ Award.
This is the eighth year that these institutions have developed this very specialized edition of the original GOOD DESIGN program, which was founded in Chicago in 1950 and remains the oldest and most important Awards Program worldwide. For the 2016 Green GOOD DESIGN™ Award, hundreds of submissions from around the world were received. Members of The European Centre’s International Advisory Committee—worldwide leaders in the design industry—served as the jury, and selected projects from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, product, packaging, and graphic design as outstanding examples of Green Design from 22 nations.
