Second annual Business Awards winners announced
All three jurors singled out two entries, judging them in almost the same order. Thus a tie has been declared this year.
One firm engaged the whole office in a project, not just the design team building the power of expanding design, energy and awareness into the community beyond their own walls.Their project and the business of it affected the whole city.
The other firm applied a business efficiency philosophy idea from manufacturing into everyday architectural practice. Lean thinking theory is innovative and, in one judge’s experience, quite challenging to apply in an authentic way. The jurors applauded the way that the firm tried to rethink one of the most essential business practices in architecture through the lens of Lean Thinking.
And the winners are:
