MASS Firm Bio:MASS Design Group (MASS) was founded in 2008 during the design and building of the Butaro
District Hospital in Rwanda; a project of Partners In Health and the Rwandan Ministry of Health.
In the years since MASS has grown into a team of over 140+ architects, landscape architects,
engineers, builders, furniture designers, writers, filmmakers, and researchers representing 20
countries across the globe dedicated to fulfilling our mission to research, design, build and
advocate for architecture that promotes justice and human dignity.
Through the design of the built environment MASS seeks to address the structural systems that
perpetuate some of the world’s most intractable challenges. Their projects range from the design
and construction of a medical campus in Rwanda to a Cholera Treatment Center in Haiti after
the 2010 earthquake, to the first memorial to victims of racial terror lynching in the United States.
MASS believes that architecture is never neutral: it either hurts, or heals and its possible to work
to expand access to design that is purposeful, healing, and sustainable. Architecture is a
mechanism that projects its values far beyond a building’s walls and into people’s lives and
communities. To acknowledge that architecture has this kind of agency and power is to
acknowledge that buildings, and the industry that erects them, are accountable and must be
leveraged thoughtfully to improve the communities they serve.
