The prestigious Richard John Livingstone Martin Humanitarian Design Award honors the memory of Dick Martin, a professor of Industrial Design at Georgia Tech, and founder of the Center for Rehabilitation Technology now known as CATEA, the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access.
Martin was a beloved professor, dedicated to humanitarian design’s important role in society. He was well-regarded for his research and outreach to the community, but his focus and dedication was to his students.
