Before we close out 2013, here are our favorite projects the year simply wouldn't be complete without. They represent design excellence across a range of attributes, whether it's the pushing the envelope in flexibility, providing hope through resilience in the wake of disaster, or integrating art and technology to tell a story that dazzles. Plus, we're proud to say that one is from our home base in Cedar Rapids, Iowa! We hope you enjoy these spaces as much as we do. Don't forget to head online and tell us about your own favorites from 2013 in the comments.
