You might ask yourself, “Do we need another architecture and design competition?” Many architecture and design awards recognize and promote the “beauty” of successful design. But we wanted to go one step further in the Design Educates Awards (DEAwards). We do not just want to see aesthetically and technically pleasing designs—we want something that offers the educational added value. We look for designs that will have a lasting influence beyond the ever-present effects of design and architecture.

The DEAwards recognize, showcase, and promote the best projects of architecture and design that provide an informative and educational layer that guides us through the increasing complexity of our environment. Such a layer can highlight 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 outstanding ideas and implementations in architectural design, product design, universal design, and responsive design.

Theme of the Awards
Visual arts and, even more obviously, language have long been accepted as forms of expression with social and even political impacts. But even design and architecture, although generally quieter disciplines, can communicate and speak to us. The theme of the awards is inspired by the research titled “Educating Buildings” (“Bildende Bauten”) by Dr. Peter Kuczia.
