The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, January 31, 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. The Great Places Awards include four categories: place design, place planning, place research, and a book prize.

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.
