The projects recognized include:

  • Waldkliniken Eisenberg: A hospital unlike any other, where high-end hospitality concepts and elements from nature are abundant, providing joy and comfort.
  • Cedars-Sinai Biomanufacturing Center: An advanced research facility that pushes the boundaries of both science and real estate design.
  • Rodney Cook Sr. Park in Historic Vine City: A community resource that does double duty by seamlessly integrating functional engineering within a programmed park space.

Entries were judged on the key ingredients of innovation: functionality, originality, beauty, sustainability, user insight, cultural impact, and business impact. “Design is not just a beauty contest,” said Stephanie Mehta, Fast Company editor-in-chief. “It’s something that can change the world and create solutions in a time when we face pressing global issues such as systemic racism, climate change, and a global pandemic. Many of these entries showcase these challenges while providing hope for the future through their steadfast commitment to elevate design.”
