The Congress for the New Urbanism recently convened a Charter Awards jury of distinguished designers, architects, planners and scholars to review entries and selected winners for the 2018 CNU Charter Awards. Antonio, a recipient of two CNU Charter Awards, joined a distinguished Jury Co-Chaired by Maurice Cox, Director of Planning for the City of Detroit, and Jennifer Hurley, Principal at Hurley-Franks & Associates. Award applicants were judged on the extent to which they fulfill and advance the principles of the Charter of the New Urbanism, which defines the essential qualities of outstanding buildings and urban places. This year’s jury had a particular interest in equitable and inclusive placemaking.
Since 2002, CNU's annual Charter Awards have recognized outstanding achievements in architectural, landscape, and urban design and planning worldwide. Regarded as the preeminent award for excellence in urban design, the CNU Charter Awards honors a select number of winners. Winning projects represent major contributions to building more equitable, sustainable, connected, healthy, and prosperous communities.
