MASS Design Group was founded by six students at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design – Michael Murphy, Marika Shioiri-Clark, Ryan Leidner, Alda Ly, Alan Ricks, and David Saladik. The team was approached to help Partners in Health design and build the 150-bed facility, and now after the successful project, the team is working on many more humanitarian projects for other global NGOs like the World Heatlth Organization and USAID. Their mission is to use architecture and design to affect change and empower people through development. So far, much of their work has largely been pro bono, but they hope that a combination of fee and pro bono work can sustain the firm.
