Beyond the Building

Community center in Akron by Rural Studio
Akron Boys and Girls Club, a Rural Studio project

Projects like Rural Studio and MASS Design Group seek not just to create buildings but also to strengthen communities by asking architects to consult with locals throughout the design and construction process. How do architects create connections across lines of race and socioeconomics? How do architects think beyond their buildings to the broader social impact of their work?
