About the authors:
Bryan Bell has thirty years of experience in public interest design. In 1985, he served as Project Director in the office of Samuel Mockbee on three houses for rural families in Mississippi. The project received a 1986 Progressive Architecture First Award. Bell founded Design Corps in 1991 “to provide the benefits of design for the 98% without architects.” His current work includes the Public Interest Design Institute and the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) network, which Bell co-founded. This work was supported by the FAIA Latrobe Prize and through a Harvard Loeb Fellowship. Bell has published two books in the field and organizes the Structures for Inclusion conference series. He was awarded a National AIA Award and was a National Design Award Finalist. His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. He holds degrees from Princeton and Yale.
