Socio Design is an independent foundation seeking to further the dialog of architecture's sociological impact. To foster this dialog, we run international architecture competitions, for both students and professionals.
Socio Design was established in Denver, Colorado by Alison Hagan in 2007. After traveling across four continents, working through three and studying in two, Alison earned her Master's in Architecture in 2006. Her passion for travel, education and the possibilities of architecture led to the conception of Socio Design, and the series of international competitions that have followed.
It is our hope that these competitions contribute to the discussion between architecture and sociology, and provide one more venue for the international exchange of ideas.
