About the Curry Stone Design Prize
The Curry Stone Design Prize defined design broadly, to include architectural, urban, landscape, product, art activism and graphic design, as well as projects that incorporate design thinking.
Over the decade it sponsored the CSDP, the Foundation amassed a global community of visionaries, activists and game changers. Today we continue to support these practices, assist in forging connections within our network and promote our winner’s work in a way that inspires others.
The prize was borne out of the Curry Stone Foundation’s belief that while design is concerned with the built environment and people’s places within it, its application is too often limited to the upper segments of society. The Foundation’s hope was—and is, to support pioneering social design practitioners and to use their work to inspire others to apply design approaches to improving their own community’s vitality.
Nominees were chosen anonymously via a network of around 200 international design professionals. The ultimate winners were determined by a jury comprised of Foundation members and invited international experts. The financial award also varied, from $10,000-$100,000.
