In collaboration with Dwell Magazine, Andersen’s third annual Bright Ideas Design Awards recognizes outstanding architectural projects showcasing fenestration in transformational design with exceptional, solar-oriented configurations.

“Bright Ideas was launched to celebrate the work of architects who ingrain natural light into the ethos of their design. While daylight creates an awe-inspiring aesthetic, it also works to improve our daily lives by creating healthier homes and increased connectivity to the outdoors,” said Tosha Di Iorio, senior manager segment marketing, architecture and design at Andersen. “The science of daylighting goes beyond creating as much natural light as possible and demands a balance of window size, spacing and glass selections with solar heat gain. We are proud to celebrate the efforts of these talented architects who design with intention and maximize occupant wellbeing.”

Winners and runner-ups are determined by an esteemed panel of judges:

  • Brandon Berg, Senior Vice President of Research, Development and Innovation at Andersen Corporation
  • William Hanley, Editor-in-Chief of Dwell
  • Jesús Edmundo Robles, Jr, Dust Architects
  • Talitha Liu and Lexi Tsien, Soft-Firm
  • Estelle Bailey-Babenzien, Dream Awake
