This year’s jurors—Ann Lui, Christiana Moss, and Lorcan O’Herlihy—found evidence of progress in six projects that embrace, and even foster, community. Whether addressing equity at the scale of a housing complex or a city, or analyzing humanity’s place in the greater contexts of evolution, nature, or climate change, these six winning projects look beyond the bounds of their sites and programs to improve the world around them. In so doing, they demonstrate the enriching impact of design on our collective experience.
