La diseñadora Emily Pilloton se trasladó a las zonas rurales del condado de Bertie, en Carolina del Norte, para participar en un audaz experimento de transformación de la comunidad mediante el diseño. Ella imparte una clase de diseño y construcción llamada Studio H que cautiva a los estudiantes de secundaria, en cuerpo y alma, mientras brinda un diseño inteligente y nuevas oportunidades al condado más pobre del estado.

Humanitarian design activist
Emily Pilloton wrote Design Revolution, a book about 100-plus objects and systems designed to make people's lives better. In 2010, her design nonprofit began an immersive residency in Bertie County, North Carolina, the poorest and most rural county in the state. Full bio
