Die Designerin Emily Pilloton ist ins ländliche Bertie County in North Carolina umgezogen, um ein ambitiöses Experiment in design-geführter Verbesserung einer Gemeinschaft zu wagen. Sie unterrichtet Design und Bauen in einem Programm namens Studio H, das die Hirne und Körper von High-School-Schülern aktiviert und dabei smartes Design und neue Möglichkeiten in eines der ärmsten Counties des Staats bringt.

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
