Event Details

Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up Design Awards

March 7, 2013 | Academy of Natural Sciences

The Design Awards on March 7, 2013, at the Academy of Natural Sciences is the culmination of the Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up!  design competition, which spurred designers to explore untapped possibilities for green stormwater infrastructure for cities.

The competition offered three design challenge categories, each focused on a real retrofit site within Philadelphia:

  • Warehouse Watershed
  • Retail Retrofit
  • Greening the Grid

The Design Awards promises to be a fun and engaging evening. It will bring together a national crowd of design, development, sustainability and construction professionals along with civic, business, and governmental leaders from throughout the Philadelphia region. The innovative designs generated through the competition will serve as prototypes for green stormwater infrastructure throughout Philadelphia and the country, illustrate potential public/private partnerships, and aid property owners in seeing the return on investment. This event will be sure to “make a splash” in Philadelphia and beyond!

Design Awards Program

The Design Awards begins with a reception in the Academy’s Hall of Dinosaurs. Attendees will then gather for nine finalist teams to present, rapid-fire, to an expert jury. After an intermission the audience rejoins the jury to hear about the winning designs and celebrate three winners, one in each category, of $10,000 prizes. Design boards for all eligible entries will also be on view at the event for all to see.

Design Awards Sponsorships

Sponsorships are available at various levels: Green Roofer, $3,000; Rain Gardener, $1,500; and Tree Planter, $750. Please review our full sponsorship information packet (pdf).

Proceeds from the Design Awards benefit the Community Design Collaborative's  Infill Philadelphia initiative.
