bcWorkshop, one of CityDesign Studio architect Brent Brown’s two hats, has submitted two projects for consideration for the Corporation for National and Community Service’s 2012 National Service Impact Awards. The awards are given to projects that leverage architecture and design as community service in “key issue areas of the Serve America Act and disaster services.” bcWorkshop’s two projects include their energy efficient renovation of five homes on Congo Street in South Dallas, and the development of a disaster relief housing project on the Gulf Coast, which designed new housing for the hurricane prone region based on feedback gathered through community meetings with an emphasis on sociability and disaster preparedness.
The awards will be chosen both by a panel of Corporation for National and Community Service judges, as well as public vote. You can check out bcWorkshop’s two projects here and here. And you can vote right here.
