Michael Murphy: Buildings Can Heal

End Date: 10/9/2018End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description

Michael Murphy is one of the founders and directors of the MASS Design Group. Though Boston is the home to this unique design collective, MASS actually stands for a Model of Architecture Serving Society. Formed as a nonprofit, the firm works on projects that are mission aligned, that serve the public and that their board of directors believes are worthy of consideration. Beginning with a public health project in Rwanda, MASS Design Group recently received critical acclaim for the design of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice that commemorates the victims of lynching in the United States. They say: “Architecture is never neutral. It either heals or hurts. Our mission is to research, build and advocate for architecture that promotes justice and human dignity.”

This lecture is part of the Farajollah & Maryam Badie Arfaa Lecture Series presented by Drexel Architecture, Design & Urbanism.

Tue. October 9, 2018 / 6:30pm / Mandell Theater / Free & open to the public
