This two-day course is presented on March 6-7, 2015 by Design Corps, SEED Network, Iowa State University College of Design, Iowa State University Community Design Lab, Iowa Women in Architecture, and AIA Iowa. The Institute will provide design and planning professionals with in-depth study on methods of how design can address the critical issues faced by communities. Training in public interest design is a way of enhancing an existing design practice and learning skills to become pro-actively engaged in community-based design. The curriculum is formed around the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) metric, a set of standards that outline the process and principles of this growing approach to design. This process provides a step-by-step aid for those who want to undertake public interest design. Certification in the SEED process will be given.
