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.
