design like you give a damn

"one of the greatest humanitarian challenges we face today is that of providing shelter. the physical design of our homes, neighborhoods, and communities shapes every aspect of our lives. yet too often architects are desperately needed in the places where they can least be afforded.
edited by architecture for humanity, design like you give a damn is a compendium of innovative projects from around the world that demonstrate the power of design to improve lives. the first book to bring the best of humanitarian architecture and design to the printed page, design like you give a damn offers a history of the movement toward socially conscious design and showcases more than 80 contemporary solutions to such urgent needs as basic shelter, health care, education, and access to clean water, energy, and sanitation.
it is also a call to action to anyone committed to building a better world."
