The 2011 Urban Design Awards Winner
Fort Collins Urban Design Awards The City of Fort Collins celebrates great places and people who design them. Join us in promoting awareness of the importance of urban design, and its role in maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in our community. Urban design ranges from a city or city subarea to a single outdoor space and considers appearances and built form, as well as environmental, economic, social and cultural consequences of design. It is not simply concerned with new development but also with the maintenance and enhancement of existing development. The City of Fort Collins created the Urban Design Awards to promote awareness of the importance of urban design, and its role in maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in our community. Come celebrate what’s been accomplished, the award is about education and celebration of good design. These biennial awards were first given in the fall of 2006, again in 2008, and most recently in 2011. The selection process starts with a call for entries and ends with a jury (made up of local designers, city board members and city staff) selecting winners from the applications. The process culminates with an awards ceremony.
