2020 SEED Winners Advance Equity in Design

The NOMA/NAACP/SEED Awards for this year highlight projects with a social justice mission.

You know about LEED, but what about SEED?

Although Design Corps’ Social, Economic, and Environmental Design (SEED) program has been around for more than a decade, it’s less well known than other rating systems. But with the green building world gradually waking up to its equity challenges, SEED is starting to gain more traction and attention. This year’s SEED awards were a joint project of Design Corps, NAACP, and the National Association of Minority Architects (NOMA).
