Architecture: A Positive Social Mission?


Rural Studio architecture in Alabama.

Most times when you think about architecture, you never equate the success of the profession with a mission that places an extremely high value of social responsibility. I was impressed by the vision of the Rural Studio in Alabama and their endeavor to make this a reality. Let me give you fair warning that I tend to watch hour long videos, especially on topics that are of much interest and that I find positive and worthwhile in nature. Make sure that you watch this over some food , drink, or both. I hope that you find value in this piece. This is a wonderful example of how the higher education process can make a big difference in the lives of everyday people and add a richness that I think is missing in the college experience in general terms.
