The multidisciplinary jury who reviewed our work was impressed by the broad range of formats and offerings, including workshops, lectures, fellowships, and of course, our beloved texts. In their words: “Futuress contributes to expanding design discourse at national and international level at a critical moment in the history of the discipline.” The award is one of the oldest and most prestigious prizes in Switzerland, and comes with a hefty check of CHF 25,000, which will go a long way towards further developing our platform! We are beyond humbled by this recognition and re-energized to keep improving. Thanks a billion to everyone who helped us reach this goal, especially Romi Lee, Tereza Bettinardi, Mayar El-Bakry, Eva Böhlen, Cherry-Ann Davis, Noemi Parisi, Heba Daghistani, Sherine Salla, and so many others who continuously support our work.
