Recreation Managementís Second Annual Innovative Architecture & Design Awards

THE WOW FACTOR

Our competition winners have been chosen! With the hopes of highlighting the best and most interesting projects the recreation industry has to offer, our 2004 innovative facility picks are unveiled in special detailed profiles. We are proud to showcase these facilities—new or recently renovated, from community centers and universities to health clubs and aquatic complexes, and everything in between—that are helping to set standards of excellence in the recreation community.

The key merit our judges have been constantly seeking is "innovative," hence the title of this competition. We are proud to be highlighting facilities that serve as excellent examples to our readers as well as generate good ideas for our readers' own facilities, which, of course, run the gamut in size and scope.
