2017 SEED Awards - public interest design competition
Премия SEED Awards ежегодно отмечает лучшие достижения в области создания общественных пространств. В этом году организаторами выступают сразу три организации: SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design), dbXchange и Live Projects. Каждая из них выберет по два победителя. Участвовать могут проекты, реализованные за последние три года или находящиеся на стадии реализации. Победители смогут представить свои проекты на конференции в Портленде в апреле 2017.
Design Corps, the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED), dbXchange, and Live Projects Network in collaboration with the Center for Public Interest Design, are pleased to announce the 2017 Awards competition to recognize excellence in public interest design.
For the first time, these three international networks are combining efforts to support and promote systemic change in the practices of design with the intent of building on the common ground they share. Recognizing design projects with exceptional social, economic, environmental, and pedagogic impact, this year the SEED + dbXchange + Live Projects Network Awards will represent the greater scale and growing relationships needed to create truly sustainable projects and positive change in all communities globally. While each network has a unique focus, sharing the awards acknowledges their common ground: supporting the growth of excellence in public interest design.
A total of six projects will be selected for awards through a competitive juried process. Two winners will be selected from each of the three networks that represent their public interest design principles and selection criteria.
Winning projects receive a $2,000 honorarium for a trip for one team representative to present their work at an international conference, taking place at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon in April 2017. Built on the framework of the annual Structures for Inclusion Conference, this joint conference will focus on sharing built works, research, and discussions which can inform the future collaborations and efforts by these networks, and others, to promote access to design as a basic human right.
