44: Brandon Perez & Heidy Piña

On this episode, Rob chats with two Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts Beyond Boundaries students based in the School of Architecture in BB24 student Brandon Perez and BB25 student Heidy Piña to talk about how architecture, when leveraged with public policy and communication design, can be a power for good in the world! We chat about the new Creative Practice for Social Change minor launched by Beyond Boundaries and Communication Design instructor Penina Acayo Laker, Brandon’s time as a Goldman Fellow with the Creative Exchange Lab studying East St. Louis, and Heidy’s first semester and “big question” that proposes a solution to homelessness through a combination of architecture, communication design, and public policy. Don’t miss this great chat with two AMAZING Beyond Boundaries Program students!
