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.
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.
