The Fortune’s Best Designs List origins in 1959, as compiled by Jay Doblin, the director of the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). The ranked project and products are nominated and evaluated based on five criteria: how adaptable and expandable the product is; impact on society or the environment; ease of use; commercial success; and whether it redefined its category. The results show a clear shift in design philosophy over the last few years. Design has graduated from value-adding to value-driving, unlocking and making accessible the value in new technology.
With regards to JinkoSolar’s BIPV façade products, respondents and judgers did not speak so much to its ever-evolving high efficiency and aesthetic appealing but to the way in which the building integrated PV has transformed buildings design concept and every aspect of how a green zero emission building of the future.
“We are honored that DEWA project using our high efficient N-type BIPV façade panel rose to the top of Fortune’s Best Design list, showing the power of renewable energy integrated with the power of architecture design.,” said Dany Qian, vice president of JinkoSolar. “The understanding of modern best design today has emphases on how elegantly the product performs its specific purpose or function which is good and sustainable for the earth, for the environment, and for people.“
