Philanthrotecture 

The mission of sustainable-design nonprofit Eco Abet is to bring experienced architectural design to underserved groups: poverty- and disaster-relief agencies, schools and orphanages in developing countries, and the like. Among the group's beneficiaries are St. Mary Kevin Orphanage in Uganda and the Nabolu Girl's Center in Kenya. As a fundraiser, Eco Abet is holding a design charrette — a collaborative session in which designers and architects draft solutions to a set problem — from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A free public reception and exhibition begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Kansas City Design Center (1018 Baltimore, 816-421-5232). In-kind donations will be accepted — funds raised will pay for architecture and design internships at Eco Abet. For information, see ecoabet.org or facebook.com/ecoabet.
