Dr. Lim Co-Chairs 2022 EDRA Great Places Awards

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.

For the past 24 years, the EDRA Great Places Awards have sought to recognize work that combines expertise in design, research and practice and contributes to the creation of more dynamic and humane places that engage our attention and imagination.

EDRA welcomes submissions from the full breadth of environmental design and related research activities, including architecture, landscape architecture, planning, urban design, interior design, lighting design, graphic design, place-based public art, environmental psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, and the physical sciences.

Awardees will be recognized during the GPA Awards Ceremony at EDRA53 GREENVILLE | HEALTH IN ALL DESIGN conference on June 3, 2022. For more information, download the Program's informational brochure or visit the EDRA Great Places home page.
