The Curry Stone Design Prize is awarded each year to honor innovative projects that use design to address pressing social justice issues.
The Curry Stone Design Prize was created in the belief that designers can be an instrumental force for improving people’s lives and the state of the world. Our goal is to make the talents of leading designers available to broader segments of society and to inspire the next generation of designers to harness their ingenuity and craft for social good.
Through the prize, we seek to highlight, honor, and reward projects that improve daily living conditions for communities around the world. Awarded projects may improve the human spirit, increase awareness of the environment, provide shelter and clean water, or address the impacts of climate change or humanitarian crises. We value work that is considered emerging in the professional and public consciousness.
