Design Challenge:
Shelter for Soul Campaign gets inspiration from various types of social minorities around us. This campaign is to care not only on a physical level of the social minority, but also on the soul level of the group around our community. We believe that a group of architects and artists can initiate and conduct this mission efficiently. The main goal of this competition is to provide an opportunity for the public and student to understand the situation of the less-cared in our community and to interact with social groups who are concerned with those who desperately seek for a ‘shelter’ around us. To present a soul shelter for one, which comes with the spirit of care and gives identity of each person, will be the expression of affirmation and an action of love.

“Everybody wants, rich or poor, not only a warm dry room, but a shelter for the soul.”
– Samuel Mockbee’s legacy (1944 -2001, awarded the AIA Gold Medal in 2004, who dedicated his life as an architect, as a social reformer)
