2020 CODAawards Celebrates the Artistic Results of When Creatives and Clients Unite

Interior Design and CODAworx—the online platform that stands for Collaboration of Design + Art, connecting creatives with potential clients to foster the commissioned-art economy—have recently announced the winners of the eighth annual CODAawards. Recognizing projects that successfully integrate contracted work into interior, architectural, and public spaces, the honors represent over $89 million in commissions. Judging the 465 entries from 25 countries—Australia, Bulgaria, China, and Israel among them—was a panel of 18 jurors from the design and art worlds, including Gensler principal and creative director John Bricker; Jennifer Kolstad, chair of the American Society of Interior Designers and Ford Motor Company global design director; and Rhode Island School of Design president Rosanne Somerson. Installations were selected in 11 categories, such as hospitality, healthcare, education, and transportation. Additionally, the jury’s top 100 picks were exhibited online, where the public was invited to vote for three favorites. See the winners below, and the merits in the slideshow above.
