GOOD DESIGN was founded in Chicago in 1950 by Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames, to promote and foster a greater public understanding and acceptance for Modern Design. The new GREEN GOOD DESIGN Awards, sponsored by the European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, and the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, aim to recognize outstanding individuals, companies, organizations, governments, and institutions-together with their products, services, programs, ideas, and concepts that have forwarded exceptional thinking and inspired greater progress toward a healthier and more sustainable universe. We are thrilled that our design for Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso was selected to be a winner of such an important award with such an illustrious history.
