Read Time: 6 minutes
WASHINGTON, June 22, 2022 — This year's winning projects in the SEGD Global Design Awards were announced on June 17, 2022, during the in-person 2022 SEGD Global Design Awards Ceremony at the SEGD Conference hosted at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Portland, Oregon.
The 38 winning projects span a range of topics, disciplines, and verticals, highlighting the role of design in addressing themes of tolerance, equity, sustainability, protest, and change. From monuments to victims of enslavement and persecution to immersive explorations of words, moving images, science, and more; to places that thoughtfully welcome people back to the workplace, school, and public spaces. This year's award-winning designers truly showcased the power of design to tell critical stories, bring people together, and inspire positive change worldwide.
