The most memorable element used by the contenders this year was balance. Designs were considered in their entirety and color. The landscape projects had particularly nuanced and gracious intentions, especially Janice Parker's, which showed complexity of design and color and notable scale of plantings. It created elegance and ease.

There were so many unusual elements that were used in the Organschi architecture project. The white, sheer Sunbrella-like fabric that formed a tenting outdoor area stays with me. What made it unique is that it was a cement patio until the fabric was added, turning it into an amazing outside room. While white and ordinary in composite, the end result of the fabric was very dramatic.
