2012 EDRA Great Places Awards





The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) is currently accepting submissions for the 14th Annual Great Places Awards for Place Design, Planning, Research and Book.

Entries are welcome from the full breadth of environmental design and related research activities, including architecture, landscape architecture, planning, urban design, interior design, lighting design, graphic design, environmental psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography and the physical sciences. Projects should emphasize a link between research and practice, demonstrating how an understanding of human interaction with place can inspire design.

A panel of distinguished jurors will select winners from four categories: place design, place planning, place research and a book prize. This year’s jurors include Richard Haag, Principal, Richard Haag Associates; Milenko Matanovic, Executive Director, Pomegranate Center; Julie Parrett, Lecturer, Landscape Architecture, University of Washington; Michael Pyatok, Principal, Pyatok Architects; and Sharon E. Sutton, Professor, Architecture and Urban Design, University of Washington.

For submission guidelines, rules and official entry form, please visit www.edra.org or download the PDF. All entries must be received by January 27, 2012.
