Celebrating excellent places and how people inhabit them
Call for Entries - Deadline: February 7, 2008

Places: Forum of Design for the Public Realm and the Environmental Design 
Research Association announce the eleventh annual EDRA/Places Awards for 
Place Design, Planning and Research - this year in cooperation with 
Metropolis Magazine. Unique in the ever-expanding universe of award 
programs, our concern is for good places and how people inhabit them.

We seek entries of exemplary work, inviting participation from a range of 
design and research disciplines, recognizing projects whose significance 
extends beyond any one profession or field. Projects should emphasize a link 
between research and practice, demonstrating how an understanding of human 
interaction with place can inspire design.

Awards recognize:

Design: Excellence in human environments, completed projects.
Planning: Proposals for future design, use, or management of a place.
Research: Projects investigating relationships between design, human 
behavior, culture, and experience.

New this year:
Book: Recently published books advancing the critical understanding of place 
and design of exceptional environments.
