The entries are evaluated and selected by the jury based on their knowledge and expertise. The jury are 71 members from various fields in Japan and abroad, including designers, architects, scholars, journalists and entrepreneurs. In “My Favorite Piece of Design 2014,” each jury member introduces his or her favorite piece of entry in a written column. The selected “pieces,” which range from products, architecture to approaches that utilizes design, are presented through the jury’s analytical point of view to convey the appeals, fun and possibilities of design.
