AIA Seattle Movie Night: Design that Heals Documentary

Design that Heals is a short (23 minute) documentary that follows the conception and construction of the GHESKIO Cholera Treatment Center by MASS Design Group. This medical facility was built in the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti in 2011 and is an exemplary example of architecture having a much more significant impact than just the construction of a building. It proves architecture can heal, instill pride, and provide dignity.

This film aligns strongly with the current exhibit on display, In the Public Interest. The documentary not only goes into greater depth about one of the featured projects, but it also reveals the means and methods that MASS Design Group, an innovative non-profit design firm, implemented to utilize local capacity in their design process. Design that Heals  sheds light on new emerging architectural practices and offers insight for local designers to better work with Seattle communities to make the most impactful architectural interventions.

Join us for an evening of film and conversation at the Center for Architecture and Design!
