Solving Social Problems Using Public-Interest Design

massdesigngroup.org

“Social” or “public-interest” design is working in high-risk neighborhoods all over the country, proving that thoughtful, community-involved design ideas really can address a community’s critical issues and needs. Architect Bryan Bell says, “Never before have so many of the world’s problems been as accessible to design solutions.” He founded Design Corps, where he trains architects to use their skills to address social problems. 

This hour, we preview a Public Interest Design Institute, happening later this month at the Yale School of Architecture. We find out how architecture is solving problems that were once only solved by public health officials, environmentalists, and community activists.
