Six projects were given special citations in the BusinessWeek/Architectural Record awards.
When the jury met last summer to review the 176 entrants in the BusinessWeek/Architectural Record awards, it chose to recognize six projects with citations. These honored projects ranged from a newspaper headquarters in Florida to a convention center in Virginia. The group included two health-related facilities—a fact that reflected the increased number of labs and research buildings submitted this year. All of the projects illustrate the impact that architecture can have on business. Click the image below to see this year's citation winners.
