Place by Design, the SXSW Eco Public Space Design Competition, is excited to announce Melissa Barry, Joe O’Connell, Otis Kriegel, Mark Palmer, David Trubridge, Barbara Brown Wilson and Kathy Zarsky as our Jurors for 2014! Their broad range of experience from academia to design and architecture to advocacy, all bring heartfelt passion to re-imagining public spaces and sustaining our beautiful communities.
The Jurors are tasked with reviewing Place by Design submissions and selecting the finalists that will showcase their projects at SXSW Eco in October! Our jurors will then name the winners at the SXSW Eco Awards during the conference. We are excited to have this group of design experts on our jury, each bringing a different viewpoint on sustainability. Learn more about the 2014 Jurors here.
Place by Design celebrates the emerging global trend of placemaking, or the act of community-based design, and showcases the work of designers, artists, architects and citizen activists that envision how their everyday places can become extraordinary.
