One could argue that this year’s three jurors from Boston, Cincinnati and Quebec City, gravitated toward modern and simple boxes in their selection of ten honor award-winning projects of the 128 submitted. See Linda Mack's review "Forms that Function" in the December 10th Star Tribune Sunday Arts section.
With an awards program history of over fifty years to reflect on, each year’s jury is always unique, hopefully balanced, but presented with a highly charged task of critiquing the best of design excellence. There’s bound to be differing views on the outcome from architects. This year is no exception. Care to share your thoughts on the 2006 honor awards or constructive ideas for future programs?
