PID Global Announces Six Project Winners

PID Global Winners 2014

Public Interest Design Global–a collaboration between Ecole Spécial d’Architecture, Design Corps and the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) Network–has announced six winning projects that will be presented at the two-day global convening in Paris on April 18 and 19, 2014, along with six honorable mentions.

Project applicants–which represented 28 countries–were measured on “effectiveness, excellence, inclusiveness, impactful, systemic and participatory” by an international jury, including Cindy Cooper of Impact Entrepreneurs, Maggie Stephenson of UNHabitat, Raul Pantaleo of Studio TAMassociati, Deanna VanBuren of FOURM Design Studio, and Vinay Venkatarman of Frugal Digital. From buildings to graphic design to furniture making, the projects have made an impact beyond the tangible product, including creating jobs, increasing public safety, and encouraging healthy actions.
