Design Educates Awards 2024

Laka Foundation is accepting entries to the Design Educates Awards (DEAwards) 2024 — international competition which recognizes the best ideas and implementations of architecture and design that educate.

The Awards are open for creative, innovative projects (completed or concepts from the last 5 years) of any scale that, in addition to excellent aesthetics, incorporate added value — such as educational potential, storytelling elements, the stimulation of critical thinking, the ability to influence users’ emotions or behavior, and an impact on perception or encompass other similar values.

Laureates of the main prizes and honorable mentions will receive: certificates and winning labels, inclusion in the book “Design Educates”, invitation to participate in the Awards Ceremony and Exhibition in Germany.

The awards are open to everyone. Participants can submit multiple designs in the same category, multiple designs in different categories, or a single design in more than one category, and in teams or individually. There is no limit as to the number of participants per team. Underage persons must apply through their legal guardians. Persons involved in the awards organization and jury (and their relatives and employees) cannot participate.

Projects must be submitted in English.

The awards ceremony will take place during the Architecture in Foyer 2024 conference at the Solarlux Campus in Germany (Melle, Lower Saxony, Germany) from 19 & 20 September, 2024. The conference will be hosted by Solarlux GmbH, the strategic partner of the awards.

The awards are hosted by the Laka Foundation, a non-profit organization and a worldwide network focused on social impact via exceptional design and architecture.
