Don't miss it! Through April 4, 2010, the Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum is presenting "Design USA: Contemporary Innovation
", featuring and celebrating the winners of the past ten years' National Design Awards.
Design USA highlights excellence in American architecture, landscape design, interior design, product design, communication design, corporate design, interaction design, and fashion. The exhibit "focuses on innovation through the lens of technology, material, method, craft and transformation."
This is a great opportunity to see the design achievements of the past decade showcased in one exhibit.
Every October, Cooper Hewitt announces the National Design Award winners. For more information, click here
I recently read an interesting article in the New York Times entitled "Some Buildings Not Living Up to Green Label". The author, Mireya Navarro, describes how builders greatly covet green certifications, but many of the buildings that receive certification don't actually save as much energy as their designs originally predicted or advertised.
I encourage you to check out the article here.
