Good Design Is Good Business

Nearly three years into the economic slump, businesses and governments continue to struggle with tight budgets exacerbated by volatile markets, natural disasters, and crises around the world. All the more reason to honor the winners of the 13th Architectural Record Good Design is Good Business Awards (formerly the BusinessWeek/Architectural Record Awards). Without exception, the projects that follow demonstrate how thoughtful architecture, cohesive collaborations, and sustainable resource management benefit a client’s bottom line, productivity levels, and preparedness for the future. The editorial jury was especially impressed with the winning architects’ integration of innovative strategies and materials into pragmatic solutions — an auspicious upshot of the time’s prevailing restraints. — Linda C. Lentz
