2010 Mumford Awards
2010 Lewis Mumford Awards
Winners of ADPSR's 18th annual Lewis Mumford Awards for outstanding contributions in areas that embrace ADPSR’s mission of world peace, protection of the environment, and socially responsible development:
Peace: Critical Resistance
Environment: Architecture 2030
Development: The Chez Panisse Foundation and The Edible Schoolyard
Critical Resistance seeks to build an international movement to end the Prison Industrial Complex by challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe. They believe that basic necessities such as food, shelter, and freedom are what really make our communities secure. ADPSR has worked with Critical Resistance in establishing our Prison Alternatives Initiative, and is very proud to honor their tireless work for justice.
Architecture 2030, a non-profit, non-partisan and independent organization, was established in response to the global-warming crisis by architect Edward Mazria in 2002. 2030’s mission is to rapidly transform the US and global Building Sector from the major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions to a central part of the solution to the global-warming crisis. Their goal is to achieve a dramatic reduction in the global-warming-causing greenhouse gas emissions by changing the way buildings and developments are planned, designed and constructed.
The Chez Panisse Foundation envisions a public school curriculum that includes hands-on experiences in school kitchens, gardens, and lunchrooms, and that provides healthy, freshly prepared meals as part of each school day. The Foundation has four main programs: School Lunch Reform, with a model program at the Berkeley Unified School District; The Edible Schoolyard, a model garden and kitchen program on the grounds of Martin Luther King Junior Middle School in Berkeley; and The Edible Schoolyard Affiliate Network, a small network of model programs which demonstrate that the Edible Schoolyard can succeed in a diverse set of climates and communities.
