Winner of the 2006 TED [Technology, Entertainment Design] Prize, the motto of Sinclair’s group, Architecture for Humanity, "design like you give a damn" sums up his design vision. With projects ranging from designing mobile health clinics combating HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa to establishing mine clearance programs and building playgrounds in the Balkans his mission is to create sustainable and innovative living standards for the masses.
This is a great example of how two designers Sinclair and his collaborator and AFH co-creator Kate Stohr can change the world with a laptop and a cell phone. This is a great story about how a journalist and a designer have taken the concept "start where you are" and launched a revolution in more than shelter. Now will someone please listen to Ed Morrison's mantra of open-source economic development, please!?!
