SXSW Eco Announces 2016 Place by Design Finalists

Posted by Green Builder Staff

Finals will showcase 36 extraordinary designs at SXSW Eco that rethink public space’s potential.

The designs range from a maternity ward meant to lower Uganda’s infant mortality rate to an initiative to compost the deceased and they demonstrate that place-based design has far-reaching influence, and that all types of places, from the lowly median to the standard storefront, to the towering, abandoned steel plant, can be repurposed to be inspirational and of community value.

In addition to the PXD competition, SXSW Eco has programmed a wealth of sessions and speakers that focus on design, and some offer continuing education credits through the American Institute of Architects

A coupon code is available to register at the lowest rate ($245, more than 50% off list rate). Go to sxsweco.com/attend and enter this coupon at checkout: reg-eco-greenbuildermedia_753f51b05e.
