Designing Freedom to Breathe


Kate Levin, Michael Murphy

The spaces in which societies undertake to care for their citizens — ranging from health facilities and schools to prisons — have across time shaped fundamental architectural ideas. What do the spaces we build say about our priorities, including our commitment to equal access? What resources are needed to provide dignity and parity around key resources, including the most elemental: the air we breathe? Architect Michael Murphy of MASS Design Group will discuss his approach across a body of work that embraces sustainable materials and practices, memorials, and community engagement.

Presented by the Aspen Institute Arts Program at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
