Laka Foundation is accepting entries for its Design that Educates Awards 2021, an multidisciplinary call for ideas that recognizes the best ideas and implementations of architecture and design that can educate.
The Design Educates Awards showcase and promote the awarded designs globally. 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:
➜ architectural design;
➜ product design;
➜ universal design;
➜ responsive design.
Participants can submit multiple designs in the same category, multiple designs in different categories, or a single design in more than one category, and in teams or individually.
Projects must be submitted in English.
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.
Results will be announced on 23-24 April, 2021.
The awards ceremony will take place during the Architecture in Foyer 2021 conference at the Solarlux Campus in Germany (Melle, Lower Saxony, Germany) on 22 - 23 April 2021.
