Planet Indy: Emily Pilloton on Designing Social Impact

Emily Pilloton is an architect, designer, teacher and founder of Project H Design and the educational program Studio H. Last year Pilloton toured the U.S. in an Airstream trailer presenting the Design Revolution Road Show, demonstrating design for social impact. Now based in the poorest county in rural North Carolina, Pilloton is working with students and citizens to sustain their community by re-designing public education and stimulating creative capital. She is a PopTech social innovation fellow, has spoken at the TED conference, has appeared on the Colbert Report, and published a book, Design Revolution: 100 Products that Empower People.
After her talk, Pilloton facilitates a conversation with the audience about sustainable design solutions for Indianapolis. Teachers attending this program are eligible for PGP points.
