応募資格 Any full-time or part-time faculty member who is teaching undergraduate studio design courses or Diploma in Architecture studio design courses in any accredited school of architecture

Through three distinct competitions - the Essay Competition; the Travel Fellowship Competition; and the Teaching Fellowship Competition - the international BERKELEY PRIZE encourages undergraduate architecture students and their faculty to go into their communities for the purpose of thinking and writing about issues central to the understanding of the social art of architecture.
There a number of ways to describe the basic elements of the social art of architecture, including:
- Inclusive Design
- Universal Design
- People-centered Design
These approaches all point to an architecture much different from what is being currently designed – and what is being taught to architecture students today.
The primary goal of the BERKELEY PRIZE Teaching Fellowship is to support innovative thinking by architecture faculty as they work to focus their students’ attention on the social, behavioral, and physical characteristics of the users of the buildings and spaces they design. By supporting such investigations iin diverse settings and situations, the PRIZE establishes the beginnings of a base line against which good and bad architecture can be evaluated.
