collaborating in inner city schools in New York City
This is what design is really about; collaboration, innovation and the social condition. Architecture for Humanity is an exciting architectural activitst organization that truly engages the world wide community to help change the way we think about our built environments and the way that our spaces help (or hinder) growth. Their focus is on the long term sustainability of built space, and the competition attached was designed to allow an open forum of design discussion for not just the Architecture community, but anyone in the world to participate and share their ideas. The exciting part, for me, is that this is what Architecture truly is... a tool we can use to help communicate how we choose to live and treat our world, and without communication and exploration we cannot sustain the world we live in nor expect growth. Check out the video attached above and enjoy. I hope that we can all learn to communicate for a more sustainable future, and it starts with how we teach eachother that makes the difference.
