Call for Proposals: The Berkeley Prize
The BERKELEY PRIZE encourages undergraduate architecture students to expand their academic education by going into their communities and investigating how the built environment best serves and best reflects the everyday lives of those for whom we design.
Cash awards and potential subsequent hands-on research experiences in foreign locales are given to students who present the best written essays describing what role the architect plays in developing and furthering this social art of architecture.
DESIGN GUIDED BY CLIENTS’ NEEDS:APPLYING SOCIAL FACTORS RESEARCH TO ARCHITECTURE
QUESTION:You have been asked to design a housing project for the disadvantaged in your local community. What do you need to know to insure that your design will both reflect the lives and aspirations of those for whom you design and for the project to be a proud, long-term addition to the fabric of your community?
