As we end 2016, PRISM marks the close of its first year as an online publication for the architectural built environment. As publisher of PRISM, I am truly grateful for the all of the editorial support we have received from our contributors — from building material manufacturers to architect and design firms.

Maybe it’s my age, but I tend to reflect at the close of each year. Part of this reflection included a look at the articles which received the most views. Just curious to see what our readers enjoyed the most.

Much to my delight “New healing green space for injured warriors will help fill research gap”  was the most viewed article. The use of nature in design for healing/wellness is a popular trend. This article focused on how nature works in the healing process of injured service members and their families.  Landscape architecture at its finest!

The woman who brought this to my attention was passionate about her work. explaining each aspect of the healing garden and its purpose in the healing process. For this woman, it was more than a job – it was a passion.

As publisher of PRISM I extend my gratitude to our readers and contributors. We look forward to working with you again in 2017 and wish all of you a happy new year!
