Design for the greater good

If You Build It
Step You Can Take

The A Path Appears exhibit features If You Build It, a film about designer-activists Emily and Matthew who lead a high school class through a year-long, full-scale design and build project that shows ten teenagers the power of design-thinking to re-invent not just their town but their own sense of what's possible.

Encourage an architect or designer to follow in Emily and Matthew's footsteps and apply their skills for good. Introduce them to 1+, the largest pro bono design marketplace in the world, where designers and architects work with local nonprofits to benefit their community. But, don’t stop there! Invite a local nonprofit to sign up with 1+ and partner with the world's most talented architects and designers to create great facilities and environments that advance their mission and values.
