Whitney Water Purification Plant

Whitney Water Puri

Designed by Steven Holl Architects as part of the great effort behind onepercent.org.

The 1%, a program of Public Architecture, connects nonprofits with architecture and design firms willing to give of their time pro bono. Launched by Public Architecture in 2005 with the support of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, The 1% is a first-of-its-kind effort to encourage pro bono service within the architecture and design professions.

Potential impact
If every architecture/design professional in the U.S. committed 1% of their time to pro bono service, it would add up to 5,000,000 hours annually – the equivalent of a 2,500-person firm, working full-time for the public good.

  1. Try making it sound like a request from a small child:

    “Please make things as mundane as utility plants not only functional but pleasing to the eye and spirit”
