Short films document winners of the annual SEED awards

By January 18, 2013Blog, NewsBites

Over the last few months, the Design Corps has released a series of  short films titled SEEDocs, which profile the winners of the annual Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) Awards. The projects highlighted range from the preservation and rehabilitation of a pueblo  in New Mexico to community engagement in a school in post-earthquake Peru. While we wait for last SEEDoc to be released, here are the first five:

SEEDocs: Owe’neh Bupingeh Preservation Plan and Rehabilitation Project from Design Corps on Vimeo.

SEEDocs: Grow Dat Youth Farm from Design Corps on Vimeo.

SEEDocs: Bancroft School Revitalization from Design Corps on Vimeo.

SEEDocs: Escuela Ecologica from Design Corps on Vimeo.

SEEDocs: Maria Auxiliadora School from Design Corps on Vimeo.

The Social Economic Environmental Design organization provides tools—the SEED Network and SEED Certification—that guide design professionals toward community-based engagement with design practice. These tools support a public-interest methodology that is increasingly recognized as an effective way to sustain the health and longevity of a place or a community as it develops over time.
