Celeste Bartos Forum, New York Public Library
Authors of the book, "Design Like you Give a Damn", will be hosting an interesting panel discussion at their upcoming book signing in NYC. As the press release for the event reads,
"The greatest humanitarian challenge we face today is providing shelter. Currently one in seven people lives in a slum or refugee camp, and more than three billion people—nearly half the world’s population—do not have access to clean water or adequate sanitation. The physical design of our homes, neighborhoods, and communities shapes every aspect of our lives. Yet too often architects are desperately needed in the places where they can least be afforded.
Join John Hockenberry, the co-founders of Architecture for Humanity (AFH), architect Cameron Sinclair and journalist Kate Stohr, and AFH New York director Cynthia Barton as they talk about their new book, Design Like You Give a Damn, a compendium of innovative projects from around the world that demonstrate the power of design to improve lives. They will discuss the various architectural responses to humanitarian crises. Their book showcases more than 80 contemporary solutions to such urgent needs as basic shelter, health care, education, and access to clean water, energy, and sanitation."
This event is co-presented by WIRED magazine
