Interface supports Buckminster Challenge project

Home News Interface supports Buckminster Challenge project

New York—The Buckminster Fuller Institute said that the sponsor of its challenge, Interface, has chosen to recognize Waterbank Schools, headed by New York-based designers and social entrepreneurs David Turnbull and Jane Harrison, with a special award of support in this year’s challenge cycle.

Interface will work with Waterbank Schools over a six-month period to determine how best to leverage the company’s expertise in support of the groundbreaking project’s growth.
BFI’s partnership with Interface honors the synergies between the legacies of Ray Anderson and Buckminster Fuller — “two forces of nature committed to designing a world that works.”

Waterbank Schools is a transformative building prototype developed by PITCHAfrica, that is a working demonstration of the leveraging power of water catchment as a socially integrated resource awareness and community engagement tool.
