Penthouse Symposium No. 14: Design Like You Give A Damn II.
Cameron Sinclair is the co-founder and 'chief eternal optimist' (CEO) for Architecture for Humanity, a charitable organization which builds architecture and design solutions to humanitarian crises, and provides pro-bono design and construction services to communities in need. Over the past twelve years the organization has worked in forty four countries and has over seventy independent city-wide chapters. Projects range from schools, health clinics, affordable housing and long term sustainable reconstruction after disasters.

Sinclair and Architecture for Humanity co-founder Kate Stohr compiled a bestselling book Design Like You Give A Damn: Architectural Responses to Humanitarian Crises and are currently working on a second volume. Sinclair is a recipient of the TED prize and a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum. In 2008 Sinclair and Stohr were named as recipients of the National Design Awards and the following year jointly awarded the Bicentenary Medal by the Royal Society of Arts for increasing people's resourcefulness.

As a result of the TED Prize Sinclair launched the Open Architecture Network, the worlds' first open source community dedicated to improving living conditions through innovative and sustainable design.
Cameron runs a collaborative design firm that operates at 36,000 ft (in flight) and recently joined as an advisor to USAID with a focus on reforming international aid.
