Many young architects dream of becoming the next Frank Lloyd Wright, creating iconic designs that inspire their contemporaries and future generations. But sometimes, the designs with the greatest impact aren’t the most distinctive or attention-grabbing; instead, they’re the ones that improve the lives of the people who experience them. This concept of designing to help the world, rather than become the next starchitect, is the subject of the latest Art in Architecture webinar, "Purpose-Driven Design: The Impact of Social Responsibility on Architecture," which is now available on-demand on our website.
Design visionaries of the past understood that great architecture emerges when you challenge convention and present something unexpected to the world.
