VIDEO: Highlights from Design Like You Give a Damn: LIVE! 2012

If you missed Design Like You Give A Dam: LIVE!  - the event of panel discussions and workshops at the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco - you must check out this short video.

The event brought together people from all walks of life from all corners of the globe, united by one simple idea: design can better human life.

As ArchforHumanity co-founder explained of the event: “We had architects from Medellin, Colombia talk about how to prevent violence through architecture. We had thoughtful leaders who have come from small towns in the Midwest that were devastated by tornadoes that galvanized their community and rebuilt them. We had lawyers that talked about how to create a better justice system – really looking at the human experience within the built environment. [...] The thing about this conference is that we don’t just show you ideas, we show you how those ideas get built.”

Check out videos of the Conference’s Panel Discussions, after the break…
