Below is a quote from Architect Magazine:

We latched onto one winner, the urban design study “Five Principles for Greenwich South: A Model for Lower Manhattan” (by Architecture Research Office), which posed a single question over and over again: “What if … ?”

The question is so simple, yet so integral to the progressive practice of architecture, that we applied it to all the award recipients. Our intention is not to elevate the Greenwich South study above its fellow winners, but to acknowledge the simple truth that good design is no more or less than intelligent, bold speculation. Asking the right questions can lead to solutions that are worth celebrating.
