Design with the Other 90%

Public architecture in South America put North America to shame. There’s something about the emerging Latin American countries that promotes viable, scalable, building projects that can transform a neighborhood, even a city – for everyone. Unlike many western countries, which have resources but lack the experience of the social dynamics of Majority World countries, South Americans seem to be able to balance access to some level of resources with an understanding of the problems they need to address – and build in a manner that elevates a broad sense of the public.
