Event description

Description

The Trump election, Brexit, and rising nationalism here and abroad have called many things into question, including how we situate the built environment in an overall field of priorities, and they come at a time when the social implications of design have been increasingly prominent. That rise has been predicated on a social democratic philosophy which suggests that the built environment is a public resource. Many public goods (e.g. clean air, clean water) already are under assault. Does the built environment require a new form of defense? If so, what is it?

HOSTED BY: Curry Stone Design Prize

Curry Stone Design Prize is one of the most recognized social impact design awards, celebrating socially engaged practitioners and the influence and reach of design as a force for improving lives and strengthening communities. Founded in 2008 by Clifford Curry and Delight Stone, the Curry Stone Design Prize's goal is to inspire the next generation of designers to harness their ingenuity and craft for social good by sharing and supporting the impactful work of leading social impact practitioners. Nominees for the Curry Stone Design Prize are selected by an anonymous rotating group of social impact experts representing different fields of design, as well as humanitarian advocates from related disciplines. Emphasis is placed on emerging projects and ideas that may not have yet been taken to scale.
