Founded in 2008, the Curry Stone Design Prize’s goal is to inspire the next generation of designers to harness their ingenuity and craft for social good by sharing and supporting the work of leading social impact practitioners.

Throughout the year, new members of the Social Design Circle will be announced every month in relation to the issue the Curry Stone Design Prize is addressing for that particular month. For this month, February, the topic is: “Is The Right To Housing Real?” Each practice named to the Social Design Circle has helped define the Social Design movement over the last decade through the impact of their work. To publicise their work, each receives a feature on the Prizes’s website and is mentioned in the Social Design Insights’ podcast.

Thus the Prize hopes to empower architects, product designers, technology engineers and artist. It also aims at inspiring citizens to take a more active role in forming their societies. You'll find all Social Design Circle members here.
