Design: e2 – Green for All

This episode follows architect and activist Sergio Palleroni as he continues his mission to provide architectural and design solutions to global, social and humanitarian crisis regions. Palleroni already has four global initiatives underway aimed at providing architecture students with hands-on field experience building housing for the poor. In East Austin, Texas, and Yagui, Mexico, he and his student teams are helping rural communities build thousands of homes while teaching them to build their own housing and reduce the cost of building by being resourceful.
