What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?
– George Eliot
This quote heads the page for Freedom By Design, a caring construction group organized and run by AIAS: American Institute of Architecture Students. Participating individuals do pro bono construction work for low-income or physically disabled residents in their communities. The modest modifications made by these aspiring architects often include structures that help individuals with common mobility problems dealing with stairs and doors. The students’ site says, “Our priority is improving the safety, comfort and dignity of the home’s occupants.”
