Design Educates Awards announces winners for its 2023 edition

The Design Educates Awards, the awards that annually recognize the best projects that respond to complex social and environmental contexts and carry educational value, have announced the results of the 2023 edition. 

The awards look for what will have a lasting impact on users and the environment and showcase the world's best ideas and realizations that can educate.

The 2022 edition attracted applicants from 40 different countries. Most of these entries represent architectural projects, but as the award becomes more widely recognized, it is gaining interest among product, installation, and service designers. 

"Although the educational layer still does not play a critical role in the design process, we are once again given proof that many architects and designers are genuinely driven by a desire to bring about change in their work," said the Design Educates Awards.

"Year after year, we at the DEAwards and the Jury Panel of the Awards are surprised by how many disciplines design can draw inspiration from and how much hope it can bring for a better tomorrow." 

"That’s why this year the Jury Panel honored 80 incredible projects," the team added.

Toyo Ito, Anna Heringer, Achim Menges, Lucy McRae, Prof. Masayo Ave, Prof. Joyce Hwang, Julie Payette, David Basulto, Han Wenqiang, Dr. Peter Kuczia were among the judges for this year's edition.

World Architecture Community is official Media Partner for the 2023 Design Educates Awards.

All awards will be presented to all participants in an awards ceremony and Architecture in Foyer Conference.

The awards ceremony will be held during the Architecture in Foyer 2023 worldwide conference at the Solarlux Campus in Germany (Melle, Lower Saxony, Germany) on September 28–29, 2023. 

The meeting will be hosted by Solarlux GmbH (the strategic partner of the awards). It will consist of an exhibition of the results of the DEAwards, lectures by distinguished architects and designers, laureates' presentations, workshops, and networking opportunities. Participation in the awards ceremony is free (registration is required).
