Overview   ..............................................................................................................

As part of a larger effort to show the potential for architecture to engage in social change, the Anderson Gallery commissioned three architects to display their work. This exhibition was intended to serve as a display and material installation representing the present and future for the Campus d’Espoir. Each tube represents one of the 60 vulnerable children currently cared for by Hope For the Children of Haiti (HFC), the length is significant of the years each child has been under the care of HFC, one year for every foot of length. In the spirit of deploying similar construction methods in Haiti by finding local materials, poultry netting and Quick-Tubes were chosen for their familiarity, local availability, and affordability. Inside each tube is an image or object representative of the Campus d’Espoir.
