Representatives of Make it Right and SNCC attended Dwell on Design to give attendees a first look at the home designs for the tribal members of Fort Peck, Montana. We’re thrilled to share this great work with our friends in the design community. Make It Right is partnering with the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes of the Fort Peck Reservation to build sustainable culturally appropriate houses. A first phase of 20 Cradle-to-Cradle-inspired, LEED Platinum homes are now in development for some of the more than 600 in the community who are waiting for homes. Architects and designers from GRAFT, Sustainable Native Communities CollaborativeArchitecture for Humanity, Method Homes and Living Homes facilitated a series of community meetings before developing their green affordable and culturally and environmentally responsive designs.
