Revisiting Cameron Sinclair and CNN’s Design for Good


In case you missed CNN‘s Principle Voices: Design for Good debate last night, you can catch up a little in this post on their site, to see what was talked about and who all participated. We’ll be keeping an eye out for clips to post, too. Also, to get you up to speed a little, CNN also interviewed Mr. Design Like You Give a Damn, Cameron Sinclair, co-founder of Architecture for Humanity, who talks quite about about the subject of using design to help people. Here’s from the intro to that:

CNN caught up with Cameron Sinclair in Biloxi and started by asking him what the difference is between design and design for good?

Cameron Sinclair: Design is about creating spaces for people to enjoy and of course, creating moments where you elevate the spirit, but design for good is figuring out a program that not only creates better spaces, but creates jobs, creates new industry and really kind of raises the conversation about how we rebuild.
