Design Like You Give a Damn

Designer of the Year nominee and founder of Architecture for Humanity, Cameron Sinclair presents Design Like You Give a Damn

Architecture for Humanity was founded by Cameron Sinclair in New York in 1999. Since then the organisation has run design competitions, workshops, published a book and carried out work in the wake of hurricanes in the US and Granada, the earthquake in Iran and in India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia in the aftermath of the tsunami. Recently Cameron Sinclair has been awarded a TED prize and is nominated for the 2006 Designer of the Year.

Architecture for Humanity UK was formed in 2004 and has worked with homelessness charity Crisis to provide short term shelters at Christmas, with the Oxford Business School and the WWF to design model arnica drying sheds as part of a program of sustainable development, and is working on a project for a cricket pitch and community centre in Sri Lanka.

This is the first in a lecture series that will bring together design practitioners, academics, students and other organisations involved in humanitarian and development work to share experiences, learn about design endeavours around the world and see how the design profession is responding differently to human needs. The lectures will take place once a month until October.
