“Top 10 Design Initiatives to Watch in 2012″

Last week’s Top 10 Design Milestones of 2011, published at Archinect, highlighted advances in design for the public good by profiling leading organizations from IDEO.org and Mass Design Group to individuals like Jeanne Gang and Michael Kimmelman. As we round out this year and usher in the next, it feels important to also look towards the future–though, of course, looking back is always easier than looking forward.

Initiatives profiled among the Top 10 of 2012 include: the TED Prize (being conferred on “The City 2.0″), Design for America, Bryan Bell’s Public Interest Design Institute training program, The 1% program of Public Architecture, Version 2.0 of NCARB’s Intern Development Program, Design Like You Give a Damn 2, Studio-H (the documentary), Archiculture (the film), “Spontaneous Interventions” at the Venice Biennale, and Public Policy Lab, as well as Worldchanging and Next America City as bonuses.
