2012 ACSA International Conference
During the first decades of the twenty-first century, public interest design is growing in the architectural profession and the academy, creating opportunities to bridge the education/practice divide while also expanding the scope of architectural practice and comprehensively preparing students for practice. This paper examines how public interest design effectively achieves many existing goals of architectural education while also proactively and systemically addressing civic issues, using the built environment as an instrumental force for socio-economic and environmental justice.
