PIDPR 2012

International Competition -registration deadline September 29th 2012

Students and professionals world-wide are invited to participate in the PIDPR International Competition. PIDPR (Public Interest Design Practices and Research) aims to expand the discipline of architecture by challenging the traditional definition and boundaries of the architectural profession, and by exploring alternative design practices. [gDx]³ (Good Deeds Good Design Group in Detroit) at Lawrence Technological University Detroit Studio (ltu-DS) investigates the goals, theories, principles, methods, and values of PIDPR.

Through the application of public interest design practice, collaboration with local stakeholders and digital networking to engage a worldwide audience, [gDx]³ proposes an alternative practice model to fully articulate public interest design and research. [gDx]³, through the PIDPR Competition, is seeking design projects that explore new and innovative ways of practicing architecture to empower and assist disadvantaged groups around the world.

A distinguished group of experts in the field of PIDPR will judge the competition. The final submission deadline is November 12, 2012.

An accompanying symposium is scheduled for November 28, 2012.
