Retail Traffic is pleased to announce the winners of 21st Annual Superior Achievement in Design & Imaging Awards.

The judging took place recently in Chicago. Overall, the jury tabbed seven projects--three as winners and four others as honorable mention recipients. In addition, Retail Traffic decided to recognize two other projects that fell just short in the judging with special Editor’s Choice merits.

The big winner this year was RTKL, which took home the Grand SADI for its Dolce Vita Tejo project in Lisbon, Portugal, which was the winner in the New Enclosed Center category. Judges were impressed not only with the aesthetics of the project, but also with the integration of sustainable technology into the design. The entire project is covered by one of the largest ethylene tetrafluoroethylene roof structures in the world. The material allows sunlight to pass through while keeping heat out enabling the center to make maximum use of natural lighting while keeping cooling costs low.

In addition, RTKL was also the winner in the Renovated or Expanded Enclosed Center category for its Chadstone Shopping Centre renovation in Melbourne, Australia.

GHA design studios was this year’s other winner taking home the top prize in the New Fast/Casual Dining category for its Carrefour Laval Food Court in Laval, Canada.
