This week in PopTech: Designing for health, business and social good

There's always something brewing in the PopTech community. From the world-changing people, projects and ideas in our network, a handful of this week's highlights follows.

  • PopTech 2011 Social Innovation Fellow and MASS Design Group’s Michael Murphy spoke to a group at Van Alen Books for the launch of Empowering Architecture, a publication showcasing the Butaro Hospital in Rwanda. Murphy discussed his group’s holistic approach to architecture and the potential for architectural practice to play an integral role in building spaces that heal and strengthen communities.
  • Longtime friend of PopTech, Nancy Duarte, the CEO of Duarte Design, has advanced the art and literature of presentations, emerging with her agency as one of the most sought-after authorities in presentation design. Duarte has just released Resonate for iPad, a cinematic, interactive and media-rich business book.
