Now in its fifteenth year, the Architectural Record Good Design is Good Business Awards celebrate architecture as a vehicle to enhance a company’s bottom line. This year, the editorial jury is honoring eight outstanding facilities—and the architect/client collaborations responsible for them—that prioritize quality-of-life, community outreach, and sustainability to achieve their goals.
