The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) is happy to announce the 2021 Great Places Awards together with the Project for Public Spaces (PPS).

The GPA awards seek to acknowledge work that mixes expertise in design, research and practice; and contributes to the creation of dynamic, humane places that engage our attention and imagination. We invite participation from a variety of design and research disciplines — particularly projects whose significance extends beyond anybody profession or field.

Award-winning projects reflect an interdisciplinary approach that’s enduring, human-centered, sustainable, and anxious with the experiential relationship between people and their environment (built and natural) over time. All submissions should demonstrate how the understanding of the experience of place could also be wont to generate insightful design and the way research and/or public participation is linked to or a part of an environmental design practice, and the other way around .

EDRA welcomes submissions from the complete breadth of environmental design and related fields, including architecture, architecture , planning, urban design, interior design, lighting design, graphic design, place-based public art, environmental psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, and therefore the physical sciences.
