Method Architecture has joined 1+, a network of architects and designers who pledge 1% of their annual working hours to pro bono projects for charities. This organization, originated by Public Architecture in San Francisco, is the largest pro bono design marketplace in the world.
“After Harvey, our firm was looking for a way we could help give back to our community,” said Keith Holley, Principal at Method Architecture. “We volunteered in local shelters, helped our neighbors clean up their homes and donated items to local charities, but as a firm we wanted to go beyond. Those were just immediate needs of our community. We asked ourselves how we could help in the long recovery of this region and were introduced to 1+. It was a perfect fit.”
Method Architecture has pledged to allocate over 700 hours to pro bono projects in 2018. Recent pro bono projects include the new Big Brothers Big Sisters headquarters in downtown Houston and Creative Dreams, a center for middle school and high school-aged students to receive tutoring and after school arts programs in Stafford, Texas.
For any charitable organizations who are in need of architectural and design services, we urge you to submit your project at www.oneplus.org.
