Congrats to Farzana Gandhi, assistant professor of architecture, who is the winner of a 2013 "healthy communities" competition by desigNYC, an organization that pairs architects with nonprofits for pro-bono design services. She will serve as the architect for a project in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, N.Y., for El Puente, a nonprofit that promotes the arts, education, and wellness for the Latino community.
Gandhi's project was selected for one of desigNYC's three "built environment" categories (of a total of eight categories) in the competition. Her project will entail designing a "Botanica cart" with mobile capabilities for residents to provide services and gather information about alternative medicinal practices.
