Architectural Collective Rethinking Social Design

The Free Design Clinic is an ad hoc group of architects and creative professionals providing pro bono services to non profits, small businesses, and communities in the Bay Area. The Clinic is an extension of a course run by the UC Berekely Extension program entitled “Architecture as Activism.”
According to the site, the six week-long clinic is a “chance for the Architectural profession to walk-the-walk and actively engage with its community.”
Non-profits, shelters, SROs, and small business owners can come on a drop-in basis and receive free sustainable design consultation from the instructor and the 15 professionals involved in the clinic. Though the course has already started and the enrollment is full, it looks like they are still looking for more clients to work with.
If you are a small business, start-up, or non-profit in the Bay Area, check out the Free Design Clinic’s website for more info.
