Supporting a cause
In its 14 years, the Shaw Contract Design Awards Programme has given nearly $200,000 to non-profit and charitable organisations around the world. Each year, the final winners and People’s Choice Award winner select a charity of their choice to donate $2000 USD as part of their prize winnings. This allows designers the opportunity to make an impact beyond the built environment.
Fokkema & Partners Architecten Bv, the Netherlands-based firm whose work drew the judges' attention for a win in the Small Office category, chose a cause that was near and dear to their practice. A former colleague oversees the construction of schools in Tanzania, and they chose to support her work with their winnings.
RossTarrant Architects, the People’s Choice Award winner, designed Western Kentucky University, USA and chose to give back to the Institution’s science and experimentation programmes.
