The Urban Workshop at Temple Architecture has received Honorable Mention for “Digging Deeper_ The Village of Arts and Humanities” in the international 2012 SEED Awards for Excellence in Public Interest Design.
The Urban Workshop, a design and research collective based in Tyler_Architecture, has worked with the Village of Arts and Humanities to develop a plan for its mixed use campus that combines a long‐term vision with catalyzing short‐term design interventions. The project was directed by Prof. Sally Harrison, AIA and Prof. Vojislav Ristic, with students from the Architecture Department of Tyler School of Art, and will continue as an on‐going community design partnership. Digging Deeper was funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts. According to the competition sponsors, Design Corps and Social Economic Environmental Design Network, SEED, the recognized projects “offer tangible evidence of how design is effectively playing a role in addressing the most critical issues around the globe…Each project team carefully identified a community’s needs and priorities, then maximized the use of resources to strategically address these.”
