The Pacific Northwest has undergone rapid growth over the past decade as newcomers flock, drawn to its booming tech economy, casual atmosphere, and great views. Home to cities like Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, the region has become a hotbed for development with an emerging design culture favoring sustainable, low-impact, pedestrian-friendly designs.
Wishing to celebrate the emerging culture of the region, GRAY Media—the Pacific Northwest’s leading design publication—has launched a new design competition to honor the most innovative projects exclusively from Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. The winners of the GRAY Awards, as it is to be called, will be selected by a panel of international design stars such as Philippe Starck, James Corner, Karim Rashid, and Deborah Berke among others. The winning projects will be honored on November 29, 2017, but until then, take a look at some of the recently announced finalists!
