This annual conference taking place at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon from April 6 - 9, 2017 showcases the best public interest design from around the globe, including the SEED + designbuildXchange + Live Projects Network award winners. For seventeen years, the purpose of the Structures for Inclusion (SFI) conference has been to bring together and share the best ideas and practices that are reaching those currently un-served by architecture.

For the first time, these three international networks are combining efforts to support and promote systemic change in the practices of design with the intent of building on the common ground they share. Recognizing design projects with exceptional social, economic, environmental, and pedagogic impact, this year the SEED + dbXchange + Live Projects Network Awards will represent the greater scale and growing relationships needed to create truly sustainable projects and positive change in all communities globally. While each network has a unique focus, sharing the awards acknowledges their common ground: supporting the growth of excellence in public interest design.
