organicARCHITECT Announces 2007 organicAWARDS


Eric Corey Freed, architect and proprietor of organicARCHITECT (mentioned here on these pages), has been working to promote green building and design innovation through his various projects since 1999. One of these projects is the annual organicAWARDS, which recognize the most exciting products introduced in the past year that promote both design innovation and environmental responsibility, and the 2007 winners have been announced. The list of award recipients includes the WorldChanging book, the Erosion Sink, Herman Miller's Leaf Light (also mentioned here) and the Tesla Roadster, which the press release notes as "perhaps the most innovative product recognized among organicARCHITECT's winners of 2007" (and we have to agree). There are some other good ones on the list: gDiapers' Cradle-to-Cradle diaper, EcoSmart Fireplace and Habitus' cork mosaic tiles are there as well, and, overall, it's a pretty good list. It's always good to see some solid positive reinforcement given to ideas and products that incorporate both design and sustainability, and the flurry of media focusing on green in 2006 helped push even more in a greener direction. We can't wait to see what gets recognized next year. ::organicARCHITECT's organicAWARDS 2007 via ::WorldChanging
