Contemporary design may have slowed this year as result of tightened budgets, but tough times call for innovation, quality, and efficiency. Recognizing the value of these characteristics, The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies are on the hunt for the year’s best and greenest designs for the 2010 Green Good Design Awards.
“This year,” states Kieran Conlon, director and COO of The European Centre, “ we expect the most advanced new ideas and solutions in the 2010 edition of Green Good Design for the world’s most revolutionary design approach for a new generation of architects, designers, urban planners, corporations, governments, organizations, and institutions for new design and a public environments based upon the ideals of energy conservation, the reduction of toxic waste and greenhouse gases, the diminishing dependence on fossil fuels, and a sensitivity for waste, pollution, and the depletion of the world’s energy resources.”
“Green Good Design's mission is to find the most innovative design approach for new products, buildings, and environments that center on the idea of repairing our world with sustainable and ecological alternatives,” he concluded.
The institutions are now accepting applications for products and projects that offer design solutions for a more healthy and sustainable environment, which have been designed or produced after January 1, 2008. The deadline to submit applications is November 1, 2009 and forms are available at The European Centre. Award winners will be announced next spring.
The Good Design Awards, founded by Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, will celebrate their 60th anniversary in 2010.
