The second evening of the annual Emerging Voices lecture series, featuring Susannah Drake of New York City’s dlandstudio and Michael Murphy and Alan Ricks of MASS Design Group with offices in Boston and Kigali, Rwanda. Emerging Voices spotlights individuals and firms based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with distinct design voices and the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape design, and urbanism.

Through dlandstudio’s master plans, community proposals, and collaborations, the New York City firm, led by Susannah Drake advocates for the integration of landscape, as ecology, infrastructure, and design, into large-scale urban networks. For more on dlandstudio, click here.

MASS Design Group with offices in Boston and Kigali, Rwanda argues that “Design is never neutral. It either helps or it hurts.” Casting its efforts across global socio-economic spectra, the office investigates the social determinants of poverty and illness and through design proposes holistic and inclusive solutions.
