Inscape: A Social Enterprise Model Architecture Studio

Start Date
10/03/2018
End Date

Description
Our session will communicate how our architecture studio is a social enterprise,
using commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and
environmental well-being. Our understanding of the nonprofit community not
only fosters excellence in design, but creates architecture that represents the
vision, goals and sensibilities of each of our nonprofit partners. Though making
up a significant part of the economic and social fabric of their communities,
nonprofits face enormous financial difficulties addressing their development
needs. We offer a solution by providing affordable architecture services to
nonprofits so that they can further their missions in the spaces we’ve created.
We will illustrate, through a case study/studies, how our business model works to
make a positive impact in the communities we serve, as well as being the
catalyst for our creative process.
