Ray Speaks at Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program

News—————25 March 2014

In early February, Todd Ray was a guest panelist for the Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program, featuring case studies of Architects Serving Communities.

The session focused on how design professionals can expand their community involvement, pro bono work, and volunteerism in a profit-driven market. The Leadership Development Program encourages an expanded role for architects, as visionaries who can empower communities through conscientious design.

Todd discussed Studio Twenty Seven’s socially-responsible quality design, highlighting some of the studio’s projects that have helped charitable organizations and positively affected thousands of lives. Among these are the Capitol Hill Community Foundation’s Library Program for inner city school library renovations; Helping Haitian Angels, a self-sustaining village for eighty orphans currently breaking ground near Cap Haitien, Haiti; and the Community Action Neighborhood Center, a day program helping to transition citizens from incarceration back to communities.
