The Green Design 100 for 2013: Build A Better World Now.

Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, the one that awarded Invitrum base unit system in 2010, announce the winning buildings and product designs from a special edition of the GOOD DESIGN™ Awards program for 2013.

100 product design, graphics, architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning projects, together with visionary leaders, foundations, and government, were awarded GREEN GOOD DESIGN from 18 nations. Under the banner, “Build A Better World Now,” designs for buildings and products that emphasize the most advanced “Green Approach” and the most sophisticated methods and technology to make the most positive impact on the environment were cited and awarded.

The 2013 GREEN 100 awarded building and product designs can be viewed at The European Centre’s website: www.europeanarch.eu. Founded in Chicago in 1950 by Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames, GOOD DESIGN remains the oldest and most established awards program for the most innovative and visionary new product design worldwide. For almost 60 years now, the Award has been given to everything and anything from a NASA space ship to a paper clip. In 2012, over 700 new product designs and graphics from over 48 nations were recognized with the distinguished GOOD DESIGN Award. The world’s most prominent FORTUNE 500 companies use the GOOD DESIGN logo in the branding of their products, which has become a strong and effective mark of public recognition of Design Excellence globally.

Now, nearly sixty-five years after the founding of GOOD DESIGN, The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies have now launched a special edition of GREEN GOOD DESIGN to focus on the most important new international products and buildings and construction and planning projects that are leading the global way to a design that is fully sustainable and compatible with the highest standards of good environment.

This year, the program received hundreds of submissions from over 35 countries. A jury composed of The European Centre’s International Advisory Committee selected 100 new buildings and product designs from 18 nations as a new design direction for an even greater, more heightened awareness to protect the world’s natural resources and the manufacturing and end-user’s growing concerns for a healthy ecology and human environment. Conserve, reuse, retrofit, and recycle are prominent themes running across each awarded new product and building design.

“This program,” states Christian K. Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Athenaeum, dramatically indicates that the Green Movement is in full momentum worldwide—from Singapore to Vietnam to New York. Architects and designers are quickly developing more and more interesting solutions to meet a more sustainable future.”
