Socially Conscious Architect Bryan Bell To Give A Lecture At The University Of Virginia School Of Architecture

August 20, 2004 --

WHO: Bryan Bell, Design Corps

WHAT: Lecture

WHEN: Friday, Sept. 3, 5 p.m.

WHERE: Campbell Hall, Room 153

Bryan Bell, co-founder of Design Corps in Raleigh, N.C., will give the Michael Owen Jones Lecture at the University of Virginia School of Architecture on Friday, Sept. 3, at 5 p.m.

Bell, an architect and activist, is part of a growing movement of practitioners who bring a social mission to architecture by working with communities and populations that do not traditionally have access to architects. The goal of this movement is to make custom design affordable for those groups, as well as culturally expressive.

Bell’s projects have included innovative solutions and designs for migrant worker housing in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Metropolis Magazine, Home and Garden Television, Biography and Hope magazine.

Bell is the editor of “Good Deeds, Good Design: Community Service through Architecture,” a collection of essays by architects working in the non-profit sector that was released by the Princeton Architectural Press in 2003.
