The Globe touts the 1% pro bono campaign conceived by Public Architecture, a nonprofit design firm founded by John Peterson in San Francisco. The campaign has created a network of architects and designers who commit one percent of their hours to pro bono projects. According to the Globe story, Brandy Brooks the executive director of Community Design Resource Center of Boston, a non-profit partner with Public Architecture, said “I think there’s a lot of confusion about what architects do… People don’t recognize that they have a right to well-designed buildings and spaces. That this isn’t just an artistic service. It’s essential.” A worthy attitude for a worthy cause.
