New Standard and Tool To Measure Impact of Design

A group of architects, designers, activists and community leaders recently unveiled a new standard and online tool to measure the impact of design. Somewhat analogous to the LEED standards for “green” buildings, the SEED standard and tool will provide guidance, evaluation and certification for the social, economic and environmental relevance of design projects. Bryan Bell, founder and executive director of Design Corps, is one of the main forces behind the effort, which took five years to develop. The online tool, SEED Evaluator, will help users through the process of creating an exemplar design. For example, it addresses issues such as public safety, job creation and sanitation, and it requires strong evidence of community participation and input for a project to be eligible for SEED certification. The hope is that designers and their clients will start to use the new tool and standard on projects large and small. [LINK] Posted by Jamie Haft
