Made in Ilima

2017/ 65 min / USA / Program 9 / World Premiere
In the center of Equator Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Ilima community remains one of the most isolated in the world. They have coexisted with endangered wildlife in their surrounding forest for generations, but as the pace of development has increased, this fragile ecosystem has suffered.
 
They partnered with the African Wildlife Foundation and our architecture firm, MASS Design Group, in 2012 to create a new conservation focused primary school and community center. This film documents our collective building process - one aimed at leveraging local craft and ecological knowledge towards education, preservation, and beauty.
Pisces
Director: Brad Deal
2017 / 3 min / USA
Pisces, from Greek mythology, takes the form of two fish connected by a cord that allows them to help others and ensures that they don’t lose one another. Pisces and its myths became the framework for the Louisiana Tech School of Design’s 2017 design/build project, A bridge that provides a much needed connection between the two sides of a summer camp for children with special needs and creates a variety of opportunities for one of their favorite camp activities, fishing.
Like Pisces’ chord, the project forever links the student designers to the campers they served through their first built work. This short film by Brad Deal, architect and director of the ARCH 335 design/build studio at Louisiana Tech, provides a glimpse of the connections formed between three students and three camper’s families over the course of the project and is framed by the blossoming efforts in design education to connect students to their communities and discover the power of design to bring about positive change.
