EDRA Great Places Awards 2017

EDRA is pleased to announce that submissions are now being accepted for the 2017 Great Places Award Program.
 
The Great Places Awards seek to recognize work that combines expertise in design, research and practice; and contributes to the creation of dynamic, humane places that engage our attention and imagination.
 
EDRA invites participation from a range of design and research disciplines — particularly projects whose significance extends beyond any one profession or field.
 
EDRA welcomes submissions from the full breadth of environmental design and related research activities, including architecture, landscape architecture, planning, urban design, interior design, lighting design, graphic design, place-based public art, environmental psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, and the physical sciences.
 
The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
 
For more information, please visit Great Places.
 
The Environmental Design Research Association, in partnership with Project for Public Spaces, presents the 19th Annual Great Places Awards.
 
The Great Places Awards seek to recognize work that combines expertise in design, research and practice; and contributes to the creation of dynamic, humane places that engage our attention and imagination. Award-winning projects reflect an interdisciplinary approach that is enduring, human-centered, sustainable, and concerned with the experiential relationship between people and their environment (built and natural) over time.
 
EDRA invites participation from a range of design and research disciplines — particularly projects whose significance extends beyond any one profession or field. All submissions should show how research and/or public participation is linked to or part of an environmental design practice, and vice versa. Submissions should also demonstrate how an understanding of the experience of place may be used to generate insightful design.
 
TEDRA welcomes submissions from the full breadth of environmental design and related research activities, including architecture, landscape architecture, planning, urban design, interior design, lighting design, graphic design, place-based public art, environmental psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, and the physical sciences.
