About this webinar

This session will take you on a journey to get you closer to the community you work with and for. By looking at the 5 E's: Economics, Education, Energy, Environment, and Emotions. Imagine these 5 E's as levers that you as an architect can control. Based on the community you are working with, you can decide the different permutations and combinations. You question how architecture functions and who it serves. You find new ways to tell the whole story of the architectural processes, the people who build, and the communities and individuals who are affected.

Hosted by Sameera Chukkapalli

Sameera Chukkapalli Holmes is an Obama Leader and the founder of Needlab, an organization that works to solve habitat and urban resilience problems in cities and rural areas. Needlab works with communities worldwide to develop human and environmental-centered architectural design solutions. They have completed 46 projects on four continents, directly affecting over 5,000 individuals. Currently, Sameera is working on "house for all" with migrants, refugees, and locals on one of the first participatory designs for a new, sustainably-built housing project. The project aims to help improve the integration of migrants and refugees through participatory collaboration. Sameera is the youngest architect to participate in Barcelona Design Week, UN-Habitat's first assembly and she is passionate about making sustainable design solutions accessible to all.

Upon completion, you'll be able to:

  1. Analyze your own projects and understand the impact they are creating on your community. 
  2. Measure the impact of your work on the 5 E’s - stimulate local Economies, Educate and empower locals, focus on green Energy, Environmental sustainability and climate resilience, and involve local voices and Emotions to promote wellbeing in the community.
  3. Apply the 5 E’s metrics to design a new project for securing funding and validating the impact on community health and safety.
  4. Tell a story of how your project is impacting the community for the better.
