Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA)

The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) is a global interdisciplinary community of research and design professionals, educators, and students. EDRA advances and disseminates environmental design research, thereby improving understanding of the interrelationships between people, their built and natural surroundings, and helping to create environments responsive to human needs.

Founded in 1969, EDRA celebrates more than 40 years of research-based innovations for all built and natural environments. EDRA’s roots are strong and flourishing. The organization’s vibrant network of visionaries have anticipated movements in research and design decades before they have hit the mainstream. EDRA’s lineage of members have pioneered environment & behavior studies, evidence-based design, facility evaluation methods, sustainability, active living community planning, universal design, diversity in design, workplace design and informatics, and digital technologies. At EDRA, researchers and practitioners work together to create places where people thrive. For more information, visit www.edra.org.
