Design That Heals

Directed by Alan Ricks & Thatcher Bean

2016 / 31 min / USA

Can a building help stem the tide of large epidemics? Haitian infectious disease specialist Dr. Jean-William Pape has dedicated much of his life to combating diarrheal diseases that harm and kill Haiti’s poor, many of whom lack access to clean water, toilets and latrines. In the midst of the world’s worst cholera outbreak in over a century, Dr. Pape challenged MASS Design Group to design a cholera treatment center where the construction process, as well as the finished building, could address the underlying structural and social conditions that allow cholera to thrive.

Followed by Q&A with MASS Design architects Alan Ricks & Thatcher Bean
