Cary's list includes noteworthy projects, people, and places that "advance the notion of design for the public good. All of which "showcase how design can and is making the world a better place, if not directly transforming people's experiences and lives."

Archinect includes New York's Section 2 of the High Line, architect Jeanne Gang, and AIGA's "Design for Good" campaign.
