Thank you to everyone who came out to Steelcase and the Center for Architecture in New York City on Oct. 21-22, 2011 to attend Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! We counted 600 attendees, including dozens more streaming live on our website. The Design Open Mic stole the show with 40 back-to-back presentations, featuring the grand prize winner, "Project Ground Up: $300 House," and second place winner, "Urban Impulse: Monterrey, Mexico." (projects to be posted on our website soon)
It was another successful event celebrating the best in humanitarian design and community development, sharing lessons learned and the tackling the collective challenges that lie ahead.
Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! would not have happened without our passionate community of supporters and sponsors. A huge thank you to all and especially to our presenting sponsor, Prudential.
We look forward to sharing video content and images in coming days. Stay tuned!
