The Butaro Hospital(photo by Iwan Baan).MASS Design is one of the most exciting architecture and design firms at work today. The firm, which The New York Times says has “set a new standard for public-interest design” uses a methodology as much anthropological as it is architectural to create buildings that are both beautiful and focal points of community cohesion.

I wrote a profile of MASS Design and its co-founder, Michael Murphy, for the most recent issue of The University of Chicago Magazine. Here’s a link to the online version of the piece. Check it out. MASS is doing tremendous work.
