FuturArc’s Green Awards bumper issue is back! Once again, we are showcasing winning entries from the FuturArc Prize and FuturArc Green Leadership Award competitions.
This year’s FuturArc Prize theme—Water and the City—asks what it means to have water as precept for urbanism. Entries that got the attention of the five-member jury were ones that dealt with risk mitigation and resource loops with a high degree of technical competence. The ones that stood out were those that stepped up their game to include quality of life and community engagement.
The same jury also picked out the winners of FuturArc Green Leadership Award, given to newly completed projects in six categories. We learn from the winning entries that Green design is embedded in place, climate, culture, and norms. Two of the winning projects are featured in the FuturArc Showcase, while the rest of the winning entries and merit recipients are shown under Projects.
A panel discussion with four of the current jurors was held after determining the winners of the competitions. See what the jurors thought of this year’s competitions and entries in the FuturArc Interview.
On other thought streams, Erik L’Heureux talks with Phillip G. Bernstein on the impact of digital media on architectural practice, while Louis White covers the Holcim Awards lecture series in Australia.
