Social Impact Focused PUBLIC Journal released Second Issue

public journal, issue 2, public interest design, humanitarian design

The team at PUBLIC Journal proudly released the second issue of this wonderful magazine focused on all the good that designers are doing around the world. ConsciousBuild co-founder, and PUBLIC’s EIC, Andrew Goodwin, described this issue brilliantly in his letter to the readers:

As Samuel Mockbee once said, “architecture has to be greater than just architecture. It has to address social values, as well as technical and aesthetic values.” This second issue of PUBLIC Journal meets Mockbee’s challenge head on. Our contributors have brought together a group of stories that examine how architecture and the process of design can change lives – sometimes for years to come. We examine how Jensen Architects’ SHED in Healdsburg, Calif. tells the story of how re-imaging the space for the Grange movement can help breath life into small towns. Two projects from two different universities (Tulane and Virginia Tech) help to illustrate how teaching the next generation of change-makers is essential for the future of architecture. We also take a trip across the pond, yet again, to Africa, where we see how a project can help to bring economy and social sustainability to a community in need.
