The 2002 Business Week/Architectural Record Awards (BW/AR) is an annual global awards program recognizing distinguished collaboration and result between clients/architect building teams who use architectural design to achieve strategic goals. The BW/AR Awards was created in 1997 to show that "good design is good business."

Now in its sixth year, the BW/AR Award recognizes the very best examples of creative management practices coupled with architectural design. The BW/AR Awards showcase the work of architects and clients who, together, are creating the most innovative and successful facilities in the world. 

"Architecture is perhaps one of the least understood and most powerful business tools available," wrote Business Week Editorial Page Editor Bruce Nussbaum in his coverage of the BW/AR Awards winners. 

A jury of prominent architects and business leaders selects award recipients by evaluating the quality of architect/client collaboration and the extent to which a facility contributes to an organization's bottom line. The jury considers how well the client and architect worked together to meet or exceed goals and the measurable impact the building project had on the client's objectives.

Entry Rules
Entrants must submit a mission statement and business rationale describing how the project fits into an organization's overall goals. Additionally, entrants describe both the process and results, including measures of how the project's architectural design solution helped achieve those results.

Public and private sector projects completed anywhere in the world since January 1, 1999, are eligible to enter. Entries are welcome regardless of project or budget size, including both new construction, interiors, and renovations/restorations. The jury will determine the number and level of awards depending on the quality of the submissions. Winning projects will be published in fall issues of both Business Week and Architectural Record.
