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.
The Award Ceremony will take place on the Solarlux campus in Germany (Melle, Lower Saxony, Germany) on March 28-29, 2019. The ceremony will be hosted by Solarlux GmbH (strategic partner of the awards) and will consist of an exhibition of the results, lectures by selected members of the jury, laureates’ presentations, workshops, and networking opportunities.
