ADPSR is a national nonprofit organization founded in 1982 to raise professional and public awareness of critical issues. It works for peace, environmental protection, ecological building, social justice, and the development of healthy communities. The annual ADPSR Lewis Mumford Awards program was initiated in 1992 to honor people and organizations whose work exemplifies social responsibility. The awards were named after Lewis Mumford (1895-1990) an American historian, sociologist, philosopher, and critic, noted for his study of cities and his writings , which remind us that architecture, design, and planning must respond to human needs, harmonize with its surroundings, and reflect the aspirations and social context of our civilization.
