Mapping the Leaders of Public Interest Design
From former President Bill Clinton to Brad Pitt and Michael Kimmelman, PublicInterestDesign.org has developed an eclectic list of architects, developers, educators, policymakers, and promoters for its inagural list of the key figures in the public interest design movement. Presented in a compelling infographic designed by Megan Jett, the "first-of-its-kind" Public Interest Design 100 is focused on the U.S. A future list will reportedly focus on those working internationally.
Of note, of the 150 people profiled, 53 percent are women and 16 percent are people of color. 45 percent of the leaders are working in place-related fields, while 41 percent are process related and the remaining 14 percent are product related. New York and California are home to the most public interest practicioners.
