Design that Educates Awards 2019

Design that Educates Awards

The Design that Educates Awards (DtEA) investigate the educational potential of architecture and design. The ability to communicate the implemented solutions and features is the main theme of the awards. Such an informational layer of design and architecture provides an important (yet not fully explored) opportunity for a dialog between the user and the designer.

The result—a new type of learning environment—provides a space for the exploration of both the design itself and its relation to the vaster context. Each year, the esteemed panel of judges will select the most outstanding examples. The objective of the awards is to recognize, showcase, and promote globally the best ideas and implementations of architecture and design that educate.

During the first phase of the jury’s deliberation, finalists will be selected from the pool of all entries. During the second phase, from the pool of finalists, the winners and laureates of honorable mention will be selected in each category. In addition to the jury’s evaluation, representatives of Solarlux (strategic partner of the awards) will select from the pool of finalists the laureates of Solarlux Choice.
