In the 15 years since the LEED rating system was established, enormous progress has been made in understanding how design impacts the environment. This discussion about the impact of public interest design focuses on Perkins+Will’s pro bono work, initiated through their participation in Public Architecture’s 1% program and most recently focused on post-Sandy reconstruction. Design can also impact social outcomes by spurring higher levels of health, education, and inclusively for clients and the extended community and in how the field of public interest design is evolving.
