7 World Trade Center

Merit Award
7 World Trade Center, Silverstein Properties, Pentagram

The rebirth of 7 World Trade Center was significant to Lower Manhattan in many ways. The original building was destroyed on September 11, 2001, and the new 52-story building is the first permanent structure to rise from the World Trade Center site. It was also the first LEED skyscraper in New York and was awarded the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Gold status.

Manhattan's Hearst Tower, the first LEED office tower in New York, is a modern reinterpretation of the Hearst Corporation's original six-story, cast stone, Art Deco home.

The High Style of Dorothy Draper

Merit Award
The High Style of Dorothy Draper, Museum of the City of New York, Pure+Applied

The first American interior designer to become a household name, Dorothy Draper was the mid-20th century's Martha Stewart. For a retrospective of her work at the Museum of the City of New York, Pure+Applied used dramatic overscaling and fresh interpretations of Draper's signature decorating techniques to illustrate her bold, brash, and sometimes grandiose style.

The New York Times Building Façade

Honor Award
The New York Times Building Façade, Forest City Ratner Companies, Pentagram

Times Square gained its latest sign when the logo of The New York Times was installed on the Eighth Avenue façade of its new Renzo Piano-designed headquarters tower. But what looks like a simple sign—if a 110-ft.-long logo set as a 10,116-point version of the newspaper’s iconic Fraktur font can be called simple—is actually an intricate skin assembled from nearly a thousand separate custom-designed pieces, each a painted, extruded aluminum sleeve 3 inches in diameter.
