To celebrate the publication of Design Like You Give a Damn 2 by Architecture for Humanity founders Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr, we are inviting architects, designers, artists, students and other creative individuals to come up with a proposalfor a small scale project, product or build that embodies the spirit of humanitarian design. Architecture for Humanity London and Studio 54 Architecture are co-hosting a week long event on the theme of designing ‘like you give a damn’.
We’re calling for ideas that will in some way improve the London experience. It could be an idea for a public space installation, a community enterprise, an eco building, an ingenious object, or anything that demonstrates how design can be used to make Londoner’s lives better and happier.
So ideas on a postcard, please. All entries will be exhibited. Visitors can vote on their favourite. We will choose a few ideas to take to the next step. The proposal can be text, a sketch or other visual representation. Think of an idea that could benefit London. Be bold. Be adventurous. Think big. Or small.
