The Inspirations Program is the product of long-standing partnership between Tandus Centiva and Contract magazine. The program recognizes leadership in socially responsible design among commercial interior designers and architects.
The Inspirations Program was launched in 2008 and has recognized design firms from across the nation that have made a remarkable difference in their community through design.
Projects can be submitted in 2 categories—Completed Projects and Practice—with top honors receiving $5000 toward the cause supported by the design work.
The 2014 Inspirations awards took place at NeoCon® World Trade Fair in Chicago honoring winners: Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, designed by Gensler, Minneapolis, in the complete built projects category, and Hawai`i Wildlife Center, designed by Ruhl Walker Architects, Boston, in the practice-based category.
The competition was judged by Katherine Darnstadt, AIA, Founder and Principal of Latent Design, Chicago; Kim Hong, IIDA, Interior Design Director at granum a/i, Philadelphia; and Paul LaBrant, IIDA, Director of Interior Design at GSC Architects, Austin TX.Click here to see all winning projects
