What Has Architecture Done For You Lately? is an exhibit, book and global charrette series exploring the barriers to a popular culture dialogue on architecture: our associations. The exhibit, opening April 15, 2009 at the Design Exchange, explores the intersection of Architecture with economics, health, environment, society and equality.

Everything we do happens in a piece of architecture, but do we even know how to design anymore?

Architecture is related to almost everything we do, every part of society and every human interaction. WHADFYL creates the new vernacular around architecture as a social, global and as a universal issue. Exploring architecture through perceptions of success, equality, emotion, health and the environment, WHADFYL highlights the potential and the power of mobilizing global citizens as the architects of our legacy.

A quick bio stolen from OCAD Student press site...
