For the fourth edition of the Distributed Design Awards, we have received more than 70 incredible submissions, all of them inspiring and thought-provoking responses to the Distributed Design concept. At the end of June, the winners will be announced, recognizing the most innovative, supportive, and sustainably designed projects across Europe, the core principles of Distributed Design. After the second round of selection, we would like to present the 12 finalists below.
