Our Mission: The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) is an international, interdisciplinary organization founded in 1968 by design professionals, social scientists, students, educators, and facility managers. EDRA came into being in the 1960s, during a period of social awareness and social unrest, but also new horizons and new visions. True to its origins, EDRA continues to believe in an agenda of social responsibility that has grown from a barely perceptible idea to a more fully-formed vision for healthier, more democratic human environments.
The Great Places Awards seek to recognize work that combines expertise in design, research, and practice; and contributes to the creation of dynamic, humane places that engage our attention and imagination. EDRA invites participation from a range of design and research disciplines — particularly projects whose significance extends beyond any one profession or field.
