What is design for good?
It’s knowing that how we design has a big impact.
On the planet.
It’s exploring new ways to improve that impact.
It’s designing buildings and communities that are not just good-looking, but good for us.
All of us.
While pressure from the pandemic wanes, healthcare workers cope with burnout. Children’s mental health is at a crisis point, and many communities are fractured. As we struggle to make sense of the changing world around us, we must use this moment to invest in design’s restorative power as a public good.
“There is a crack in everything,” Leonard Cohen wrote. “That’s how the light gets in.”
As we look ahead to a healthier, greener, more equitable world in 2022, let’s be the good.
Let’s be the light.
