Design Like You Give a Damn: Architectural Responses to Humanitarian Crises
Title: Design Like You Give a Damn: Architectural Responses to Humanitarian Crises

ISBN: 1933045256

From John King, San Francisco Chronicle November 2006

“Heavy on context and images, light on celebrity names, "Design Like You Give a Damn" is a bracing reminder that there's more to architecture than museums and posh private homes. Instead, the founders of the group Architecture for Humanity round up 77 nimble solutions to real-life problems: There are fiberglass domes for the homeless of Los Angeles, a schoolhouse in Burkina Faso with an arced steel roof that insulates the clay brick classrooms below -- even a water pump in South Africa that is powered by children playing on a merry-go-round.  Truly inspirational.”
