This blog highlights public interest design projects, events, people, etc. with a focus on the Washington DC metro area.

Public interest design is a human-centered and participatory design practice that places emphasis on the “triple bottom line” of sustainable design that includes ecological, economic, and social issues and on designing products, structures, and systems that address issues such as economic development and the preservation of the environment. – Wikipedia
