ABOUT THE BOOK
Design for Good is premised on the belief that everyone deserves good design. This isn’t just another book for and about designers; it’s a book about the lives we lead, inextricably shaped by the spaces and places we inhabit.
With a foreword by Melinda Gates, the book showcases 20 diverse building projects from across the country and around the world. Brought to life with stunning photography, each project narrative is based on extensive interviews with clients, users, and designers, including David Baker Architects. Published by Island Press and designed by Pentagram, copies of the book will be available for purchase during the event from a local independent bookseller.
