"From a diverse and exemplar quality of new submissions, the German Jury in Munich selected over 60 outstanding projects, each speak to new values: Form is no longer to be celebrated for its own sake and architecture in its greatest expression must positively impact institutions, strengthen communities, act sustainably and resiliently, and spark optimism, curiosity, and generosity in the human spirit," states Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Athenaeum.
