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.
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.
