"That's what we do really: we do miracles," said Anne-Marie Nyiranshimiyimana, who learned masonry in helping to build the Butaro Hospital, a project designed for and with the people of Rwanda using local materials. This, and other projects designed with dignity, show the power of good design.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Design for Good is a visual testament to the fact that every human being has the right to live a healthy, dignified life. This beautiful book marries my own passions for design and global health leadership in a way that no other book has. More importantly, it demonstrates that designers can--and must--play a role in creating a more equitable world. The best part? It's a new generation of leaders from the Global South who are on the cutting edge of the next health revolution. If questions about the uncertain future of global health keep you up at night, this book is for you."--Barbara Bush, Co-founder & CEO, Global Health Corps
"In John Cary's remarkable book, we hear directly from the creative minds--users, clients, and, yes, designers--that came together to create 20 stunning buildings across the globe. They were brought to life by a process that we, at IDEO, call human-centered design. It's not just a buzzword; it's a way of approaching work that matters. These solutions, this book, matter deeply to a field searching for its highest calling and to a world in need of our best efforts."--Tim Brown, CEO, IDEO and author of "Change By Design"
"Design for Good draws a clear line between the spaces we inhabit and the social justice we seek. Through rich stories and breathtaking images, author John Cary makes a compelling and fresh argument that architects have an opportunity to not just build buildings, but build dignity. It's time we raise all people's expectations that they too deserve good design. The world will be a better, more just, and more equitable place for it."--Darren Walker, President, Ford Foundation
"I can't recommend John Cary's book, Design for Good, highly enough. His argument--that everyone deserves good design--is clear and revolutionary."--Melinda Gates
