The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies jointly announce the winning buildings and product designs from a special GREEN edition of the GOOD DESIGN® Awards program for 2022.
For 2022, hundreds of product designs, graphics, architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning projects, together with visionary leaders, were submitted for GREEN GOOD DESIGN from over 40 nations.
Under the banner, Build A Better World Now, designs for buildings and products that emphasise 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.
This year, a jury composed of The European Centre’s International Advisory Committee selected over 150 new buildings, landscape projects, and product designs from over 30 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.
For 2022, awarded buildings, urban plans, and products from the following nations include: Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Ireland, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, México, New Zealand, Norway, Republic of Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, The Netherlands, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, and Vietnam.
More impressive is the list of visionary companies and industrial design firms producing state-of-the-art appliances, transportation products, kitchens, housewares, fixtures, building products, electronics, lighting, floorcovering and office furniture.
