About EDRA

The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) is an international, interdisciplinary organization founded in 1968 by design professionals, social scientists, students, educators, and facility managers. EDRA came into being during a period of social awareness and social unrest. Consequently, our agenda, the social aspects of the environment, was clearly a product of the times. The 1960's were a period of new horizons and new visions. In fact, at that time a vision was closely linked to a hallucination. Although we believed in something that was not perceptible at the time, we had no illusions.
