Design Like You Give a Damn [2] is the indispensable handbook for anyone committed to building a more sustainable future. Following the success of their first book, Architecture for Humanity brings readers the next edition, with more than 100 projects from around the world.

One-on-one interviews and provocative case studies demonstrate how innovative design is reimagining community and uplifting lives. From building-material innovations such as smog-eating concrete to innovative public policy that is repainting Brazil’s urban slums, Design Like You Give a Damn [2] serves as a how-to guide for anyone seeking to build change from the ground up.

Praise for Design Like You Give a Damn [2]:

“No community is immune to the forces of climate change. If we have learned anything from Hurricane Katrina, it is that we must adapt. Good design accelerates the adoption of new ideas-and this book shows us how.”
Brad Pitt, Jolie-Pitt Foundation”It is not just about putting bricks to mortar. It is about taking the vision of
creating a better world for others and making it tangible”
Auma Obama, Sauti Kuu Foundation
