LECTURE - Do Better Architecture

Holst Architecture believes that exceptional architecture is for everyone, and should not just be reserved for a select few. Everyone interacts with architecture, and everyone deserves to experience beautiful, uplifting spaces. As a firm, we have seen firsthand the benefits that design can have on the lives of others.

This presentation will illustrate how thoughtful design can truly impact vulnerable populations in meaningful ways, from at-risk youth to families in recovery to citizens experiencing homelessness. We want to inspire other designers to provide high-quality design to public and nonprofit projects, meeting the schedule and budget while refusing to compromise beauty. Additionally, we will demonstrate the importance of designing public and nonprofit projects with sustainability, durability, and the health and safety of residents at the forefront.
