ATTENTION: Due to COVID-19, EDRA52 Detroit will take place online for 2021.
The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) invites practitioners, researchers, and educators to submit their proposals and join the 52nd annual conference. The conference will focus on how research, design, and relationships between people and environments contribute to the creation of justice. Current social, health, environmental, and justice challenges call for collaborative and transdisciplinary efforts to pursue intentional questioning of disciplinary borders and sensitive approaches to framing and solving pressing contemporary problems through research and practice.
EDRA52 Detroit invites researchers and practitioners to join them as they debate, discuss, reflect, and transform our capacity to foster justice around the world through collaborative and transdisciplinary efforts.
The purpose of EDRA – The Environmental Design Research Association – is to advance and disseminate research, teaching, and practice toward improving an understanding of the relationships among people, their built environments, and natural eco-systems.
The mission of EDRA is to provide a collaborative, multidisciplinary community to connect theory, research, teaching, and practice to recognize, create and advocate for environments that are responsive to diverse human needs. EDRA is committed to equity, inclusion, and respect for all persons.
