Naturgy's new headquarters in Barcelona, a building owned by Inmobiliaria Colonial and designed by sanzpont [architecture], has been awarded 2 gold awards in architecture at the Muse Design Awards in New York, United States. The awards on this occasion include Gold in Office Building Design and Gold in Architectural Rehabilitation.
With these recognitions, the project already has 4 international awards in architecture design.
The awards programs stay true to their objective of honoring professionals in both creative and design spaces, promoting the entrants’ excellent works in spite of the changing times wrought by the pandemic. All this is only possible with the commitment shown by the International Awards Associate (IAA), creator of the awards. “Evidently, the new normal has brought about changes to how people operate in the world” said Kenjo Ong, CEO of IAA. “Despite the challenges, these individuals have shown remarkable tenacity in their continued excellence, wis clearly demonstrated in their works.”
IAA upholds impartiality by enacting strict assessment criteria and organizing a jury made up of industry professionals, who are living examples of excellence themselves. The jury then selects individuals whose works distinguishes themselves, in hopes that these people would then set new benchmarks in their fields.
The Jury and Evaluation Process with as many as 46 jurors onboarding from 25 countries, the awards ensures that a diverse panel of qualified professionals are adjudicating the competition. These individuals can be found working under leading companies from the creative and design industries, such as Associate Creative Director of MullenLowe Renato Barreto, Visual Communication Design Specialist at United Nations Children's Fund Shangning Wang, Creative Director of BEAMY Ronn Lee, Creative Director of ADBRAIN Inc. Masanori Eto, Dr Adjunct Associate Professor and Design Director of Irving Smith Architects Jeremy Smith, Founder and Creative Director of Kre8ive Partners Mark Turner, Owner and Founder of UArchitects Misak Terzibasiyan, etc.
Every entry is assessed based on relevant standards pertaining to their respective industries in order to ensure impartiality. Further, blind judging is exercised, as such jurors are only able to assess each entry purely on its own merits.
“With our platform poised to support a burgeoning industry of creative and design professionals, we remain optimistic in the potential of these industries,” Kenjo said. “The team in IAA bears witness to the professionalism and excellence displayed by these individuals who persevere in spite of recent hardships. We will continue to endure and uphold this platform for those who need it, and in turn, we hope to see these talents rise in fame and glory.”
“Despite waves of fear and uncertainties, the intrepid shall take the lead in this new world. Their first steps will guide those to come, as they trudge on with an inner strength like no other. Their triumph in spite of the impossibilities inspire others to move forward, making them a beacon of hope for others.” The MUSE Awards honors those who are dauntless in adversity; who take on challenges with an unwavering will, who set the standards for the world and inspire others to reach higher.
“A muse sees their goal and looks ahead. Their intent remains unadulterated and pure, staying true to the essence of its owner. No adversity is too great to overcome, nor too complicated to comprehend.“ The MUSE Design Awards honors design professionals who, despite being mired in uncertainties and hopelessness, march on and remain true to their works.
Stride forth, remain unwavering, and take your crown as a MUSE.
