NEW YORK, NY.- The Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum will celebrate outstanding achievement in design this fall with its 11th annual National Design Awards program, now in its second decade. Today, Cooper-Hewitt Director Bill Moggridge announced the winners and finalists of the 2010 National Design Awards, which recognize excellence across a variety of disciplines. The Award recipients will be honored at a gala dinner Thursday, Oct. 14, at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York. First Lady Michelle Obama serves as the Honorary Patron for this year’s National Design Awards.

“The context in which designers and design thinkers operate is expanding all the time, as evidenced by the work of these award winners. These design pioneers are committed to shaping how we live through design and their work truly responds to the pressing issues of the day,” said Moggridge.

The 2010 National Design Award nominations were solicited from a committee of more than 2,500 designers, educators, journalists, cultural figures and corporate leaders from every state in the nation. Nominees must have at least seven years of experience in order to be nominated, and winners are selected based on the level of excellence, innovation and public impact of their body of work. This year’s jury of design leaders and educators from across the country convened by Cooper-Hewitt reviewed the nominations and chose Lifetime Achievement and Design Mind recipients, and selected winners and finalists in the Corporate and Institutional Achievement, Architecture Design, Communication Design, Fashion Design, Interaction Design, Interior Design, Landscape Design and Product Design categories.

First launched at the White House in 2000 as a project of the White House Millennium Council, the National Design Awards were established to promote excellence and innovation in design. The Awards are accompanied each year by a variety of public education programs, including special events, panel discussions and workshops.

Cooper-Hewitt’s fifth annual National Design Week will be held Oct. 9-17.

The 2010 National Design Award recipients are:

Lifetime Achievement: Jane Thompson

The Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing an individual who has made a long-term contribution to the practice of design, is presented to editor, designer and planner Jane Thompson. For 60 years, Thompson has explored how design relates to human well-being, urban life and the global environment. As founding editor of I.D. Magazine, Thompson became a critical voice on issues of design, also providing a strong female perspective on what was a male-dominated field. Thompson has been a principal in pioneering urban-revitalization projects, including Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston, Union Station in Washington, D.C., Grand Central District in New York and Navy Pier in Chicago. As founder of Thompson Design Group, a Boston architecture/planning firm, her current projects include the revitalization of Buffalo Bayou, a 10-mile urban waterfront in Houston. Jane and Benjamin Thompson, FAIA, collaborated for two decades on Design Research, the postwar emporium introducing advanced designs from abroad. Her book, Design Research: The Store That Brought Modern Living to American Homes, chronicling the renowned “General Store of Good Design,” will be published in September.

The Design Mind Award recognizes visionary individuals or firms that have affected a shift in design thinking or practice through writing, research and scholarship. The 2010 recipient is Ralph Caplan. For more than 50 years, Caplan has been thinking, writing and speaking about design and has collaborated with designers on exhibitions, films and publications. His work has addressed the design process as encompassing not only products, but the larger context in which they are used. Caplan is the author or editor of several books, including By Design: Why There Are No Locks on the Bathroom Doors in the Hotel Louis XIV and Other Object Lessons and Cracking the Whip: Essays on Design and Its Side Effects. A former editor of I.D. Magazine, Caplan continues to contribute to numerous books and periodicals and lectures across the United States and abroad. He teaches design criticism at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Corporate and Institutional Achievement: U.S. Green Building Council
The Corporate and Institutional Achievement Award recognizes a corporation or institution that uses design as a strategic tool of its mission and helps to advance the relationship between design and quality of life.
