It’s been a monumental year for the design industry, beginning with female architects like Denise Scott Brown receiving the American Institute of Architects' top award, the Gold Medal, along with her husband and partner Robert Venturi. We also witnessed a global commitment toward building a more sustainable world with the European Commission's 2020 Energy Strategy. Then we saw the fulfillment of the "Back to the Future" movie franchise’s prediction that hoverboards would be real.

While a New Year’s resolution to go to the gym regularly might be tricky to keep, we’re making it easy to commit to earning your required Continuing Education credits. In fact, we recently partnered with Architectural Record to produce “A Placemaking Approach to Design.” Available online and in the December 2014 print version of the magazine, this article delves into the mindsets of today’s forward-thinking designers who have made it their mission to plan sites that serve today’s needs and those of generations to come: a concept known as intelligent urbanism.
