On Thursday 18 July John McAslan + Partners are hosting a discussion on the practice's Malawi School and Hidden Homeless initiatives as part of 'Make Design Matter' –  a series of inspirational monthly talks curated by humanitarian architecure charity Article 25. With presentations by JMP Associates Georgina Ward and Heather Macey, the evening will also feature a panel discussion.

Hidden Homeless is a competition to explore radical and innovative housing solutions for homeless young people across the capital. Set up in collaboration with New Horizon Youth Centre, the project engages policymakers, housing associations, site owners and developers in finding new and better models for tackling homelessness.

Malawi Schools is a project set up in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative and the Malawi Ministry of Education, seeking to provide free primary education in rural districts. For the project JMP has developed a low cost, environmentally responsive classroom building as a prototype to be rolled out in new schools across Malawi.

John McAslan + Partners' Outreach work applies design thinking to assist communities all over the world facing environmental or social challenges. Projects range from the restoration of the Iron Market in Port-au-Prince, Haiti following the devastation of the 2010 earthquake to building an auditorium at the Memorial Centre in Kigali, Rwanda – a centre for reconciliation completed to mark the 20th anniversary of the 1994 genocide.
