The 2013 Architectural Showcase Is Now Closed
For nearly three decades, Athletic Business has sponsored the Architectural Showcase, recognizing the best in recently constructed athletic, recreation and fitness facilities around the world. Entered by architects and other design professionals, as well as by facility owners and operators, all submittals appear in the June issue and in athleticbusiness.com's Architectural Galleries, and are then reviewed by a panel of leading sports facility architects, who each year honor 10 of the projects with Facility of Merit awards. Award-winners will be profiled further in the November issue of Athletic Business and honored at the Athletic Business Conference, which in 2013 takes place Nov. 21-23 in San Diego.
Submitters to the Architectural Showcase receive a valuable opportunity to generate increased business through exposure to athletic, recreation and fitness facility planners in North America and overseas.
Facility of Merit Awards
Each summer, a rotating panel of leading architects convenes for two days to review all entries from the June issue and choose 10 facilities to receive the coveted Facility of Merit Awards, announced in the November issue of Athletic Business and presented at the annual Athletic Business Conference.
Facilities are selected on the basis of plan efficiency; functional relationships and measures taken to maximize use of space; interior finishes, detailing and color schemes; exterior design; relationship of building to site; and cost of construction for value received.
