         There are those that believe architects should serve everyone, not just the privileged. This issue focuses on them: exceptional architects committed to community design services for underserved communities. Albert Einstein said: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” BD salutes the socially conscious thinkers and architects who’s passion is designing a better world for all. Adelante!
