DESIGN THAT EDUCATES AWARDS 2020
The ‘Design that Educates Awards’ (DtEA) recognize, showcase, and promote globally the best ideas and implementations of architecture and design that can educate. The design itself may provide an informative and educational layer that guides us through the increasing complexity of our environment. It can showcase specific possibilities and challenges, explain sociocultural factors and influences, or even outline new scenarios for future development. Each year, the esteemed panel of judges selects the outstanding ideas and implementations in the categories of architectural design, product design, universal design, and responsive design. www.designeducates.com

JOIN
The awards are a multidisciplinary call for ideas and implementations in the categories of (1) architectural design, (2) product design, (3) universal design, and (4) responsive design. Entries will be evaluated based on the criteria of the overall idea and implementation, the potential of the educational influence of the submitted design, the effectiveness and quality of the informative layer, aesthetics, the quality of presentation, visionary approach, originality, feasibility, and comprehensiveness. The theme of the awards has been inspired by the research called ‘Educating Buildings’ (‘Bildende Bauten’) by Dr. Peter Kuczia. The submitted ideas should refer to the competition theme and underline the educational potential of design. [The new category of responsive design is a result of collaboration
between the ‘Design that Educates Awards’ and ‘Architecture that Reacts Competition’ and is dedicated to ideas and implementations that are capable of dynamic interaction with their environment and develop through a process of changes and adjustments; consider submitting your project to both programs: www.lakareacts.com.]
