Tooting Our Own Horn
With all the activity at Metropolis in the last few months–our special product issue, the 2009 Next Generation competition, New York Design Week–we’ve barely had a chance to publicize a couple of recent awards bestowed on the magazine. So please forgive us this brief moment of self-congratulation: in March, Metropolis was named the architecture magazine of the year at the International Design Awards; and, at the American Institute of Architects Convention earlier this month, the AIA handed us a Collaborative Achievement Award. We can’t resist quoting from the latter citation:
Reaching a broad cross-section of design disciplines, touching all elements of design excellence, it speaks to elemental and contextual innovation, including, but not limited to, ecological insight, livability, and community development; in short, the spectrum of all goals of the architectural profession.
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves! And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
