Public Interest Design

Public interest design is a human-centered and participatory design practice that places emphasis on the “triple bottom line” of sustainable design that includes ecological, economic, and social issues and on designing products, structures, and systems that address issues such as economic development and the preservation of the environment. Our Sustainable Habitats Program, and its partners, are committed to the public interest design principles in all our projects. We are currently partnering with Metaamo in Portland, Oregon, as well as with several institutions, local communities, and skilled architects to support Micronesia in finding alternative avenues to mitigate the ever-changing circumstances in the Pacific Region.
