THRIVE Series: The Human Impact of Architecture with Alan Ricks and Michael Murphy, Co-founders of MASS Design Group

May 25th, 6:00 pm-7:00 pm

MASS began in 2008 during the design and building of the Butaro District Hospital in Rwanda; a project of Partners In Health and the Rwandan Ministry of Health. Since then, MASS has expanded to work in over a dozen countries in Africa and the Americas. MASS’s work spans the design of buildings, research, policy, education, and strategic planning.

Architecture is not neutral; it either helps or hurts. Architecture is a mechanism that projects its values far beyond a building’s walls and into the lives of communities and people. To acknowledge that architecture has this kind of agency and power is to acknowledge that buildings, and the industry that erects them, are as accountable for social injustices as they are critical levers to improve the communities they serve.
