Synopsis: Empowering Architecture is the MASS Design Group's first publication. MASS partners with governments and various organizations to apply design and architectural thinking to social justice goals and produce equitable infrastructure that assists its partners in breaking the cycles of structural violence and poverty. This volume is a case study on the recently completed Butaro Hospital in Rwanda, which sought to employ a community and reduce the in-hospital-transmission of disease. The book highlights strategies to improve health and strengthen communities through design. Featuring an introduction by Dr. Paul Farmer, the founder of Partners in Health and a leader in global health delivery, and a sprawl of breathtaking images by renowned architectural photographer Iwan Baan, Empowering Architecture is a great example of how the intersection between health and design can create dignified spaces that heal.
