The Curry Stone Design Prize was created in the belief that designers can be an instrumental force for improving people’s lives and the state of the world. Our goal is to make the talents of leading designers available to broader segments of society and to inspire the next generation of designers to harness their ingenuity and craft for social good. The Curry Stone Design Prize was founded by Clifford Curry and Delight Stone. Cliff is an architect and recognized pioneer in senior housing. Delight is a historic archaeologist and social justice activist.
