SMART ENVIRONMENTS AWARD
Posted By Evelyn Lee On April 20, 2006 @ 7:28 pm In Announcements,Green Design Competitions,Green Design Events | No Comments
The International Interior Design Association  and Metropolis Magazine  announce their first annual Smart Environment Awards  recognizing interior environments that integrate design excellence, human wellbeing, and sustainability. While this contest is only open to Interior design and architecture professionals, its announcement precludes the industry’s and public’s growing interest for sustainable design and healthy environments. Winners will be judged in May 2006 and announced at NeoCon World’s Trade Fair in June 2006 in Chicago.
Entrants will have to respond to questions asking:
How well does the project integrate beauty, functionality and programming objectives? How well does the project meet human needs, such as indoor air quality, ergonomics, availability of natural light and connection with the outside? How well does the project demonstrate sustainable performance measures such as energy use and environmental impact?
