The intent of the Outstanding Facade Innovation award is to single out truly innovative contributions to the art, science or technology of the building skin. Such contributions can vary in nature, scope and scale ranging from material, process or product developments to novel applications of new or existing technology, at the discretion of the jury.
Submissions for the Outstanding Facade Innovation category will be evaluated in the overarching context of innovation and sustainability, which may include diverse considerations ranging from design concepts to project delivery strategies, supply chain management and lifecycle performance attributes.
The hierarchy of consideration for the Outstanding Facade Innovation Award will be:
10% — Clarity (narrative and graphic representation)
45% — Innovation (creativity, novelty and positive disruptive potential)
45% — Sustainability (The extent to which the innovation contributes to resilience and sustainability goals in buildings and urban habitat.)
