Public Interest Design sets to influence the greater good of a community. I believe that it is a very powerful tool and design approach to open up to group of people or your target audience, it creates a level of understanding and also a strong bond between the designer.
There is a passion about creating a better world through Public interest design and it drives the individuals and strive for to help those in need. The traditional courtship between architects and projects of public interest relied on the mediation of benefactors with bank rolls who chaperoned the impassioned relationship between the architect and his work to ensure all appearances were in order. As the presence of public interest design has grown in recent years, this relationship has shifted. Often, the “client” includes the end users, who are not responsible for financing the project but participate in the conception and construction in collaboration with the architect.
