Emily Pilloton: Design. Build. Transform.

For Emily Pilloton and her non-profit agency Project H Design, design is a process of building and activism to benefit the community. Pilloton and her partner, Matthew Miller, also developed and teach Studio H, a design/build high school curriculum in the poorest county in North Carolina. In one year, her students earn college and high school credits researching, designing, and constructing a contextually responsive and socially transformative piece of full-scale architecture for their home town. This is the only full-scale design/build program at a high school level in the country. Pilloton has appeared at TED and on the Colbert Report, and authored the book Design Revolution.

With support from Arts Engine and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA).

Established with the generous support of alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Speaker Series brings respected emerging and established artists/designers from a broad spectrum of media to the School to conduct a public lecture and engage with students, faculty, and the larger University and Ann Arbor communities. Additional support is provided by our media sponsor, Michigan Radio.

Events in the Penny Stamps series are always free of charge and open to the public.
