Extraordinary Public Interest Design Projects Honored by International SEED Awards

Environmental Works is pleased to announce that the Place of Hidden Waters Puyallup Tribe Longhouse project has been awarded an international SEED Award for Excellence in Public Interest Design.  SEED Awards recognize excellence in social, economic and environmental design, and represent the collaborations needed to create truly sustainable projects and change in the world.  Six projects were selected out of sixty-five submitted from 21 countries worldwide.

SEED (Social Economic Environmental Design) is the only design standard to use a “triple bottom line” approach to public interest design, going beyond “green design” to address all issues that challenge communities globally.  The SEED Awards are organized by the Social Economic Environmental Design Network and Design Corps, a Raleigh-based non-profit design organization.  www.seednetwork.org
