Charles Newman, LEED AP
I am passionate about architectural design and I have dedicated my life to helping those most in need through efficient, sustainable, community-driven design strategies. I design and manage small scale construction projects and coordinate between communities, consultants and contractors. My work identifies community needs, seeks feasible solutions, and when desired, incorporates local customs into the design process.
I am currently working with the International Rescue Committee in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo as the Community Driven Reconstruction Manager. I oversee all construction efforts supported through the IRC in the South Kivu Province.
Whenever asked, I do my best to provide free architectural advice to those who are in need. Some of these projects are featured on this blog. I am also available for public speaking events, having spoken at TEDxLemek, University of Montana, Rutgers University, New York University, Cooper Union, and the Center For Architecture in New York City. Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or potential projects.
