Eric Corey Freed has said that design is all around us. Good design and bad design. We have found in making this film that design shapes the social world. John Peterson of Public Architecture has found ways to maximize the personal connections suggested by public spaces. Kevin Rowell with Kleiwerks brings a sense of ownership to design. A sense of shelter cannot be planted, it must be cultivated. Use of bamboo, earthen materials. Design an make or break communities. Shelter brings dignity.
Would also discuss Nathaniel Corum here.
