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.”
