Design for Impact, Design for Good

by Thiago Da Silva

There are some that say design and innovation can change the world. Cameron Sinclair, who heads up design and construction for the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, is one of those people.

In case you’re wondering what Cameron does, he builds for communities in need. Sinclair previously co-founded and ran Architecture for Humanity, a charitable organization which built architecture and design solutions for humanitarian crises. Cameron was able raise over $50M for humanitarian initiatives during his 14-year tenure. Projects ranged from schools, health clinics, affordable housing and long-term sustainable reconstruction after natural and man-made disasters.

He’s a leading authority on the future of architecture and co-edited two bestselling books including “Design Like You Give A Damn 1 and 2”. Sinclair was a recipient of the TED prize, here’s a video clip of him speaking at TED a couple years back.

Don’t miss his session Designing for Impact at Innovate @ TBD FEST where he’ll dive deeper into how design can help save the world. This one shouldn’t be missed.
