HEIFER INTERNATIONAL MURPHY KELLER EDUCATION CENTER | Architecture Thesis

HEIFER INTERNATIONAL MURPHY KELLER EDUCATION CENTER “In all my travels around the world, the important decisions were made where people sat in a circle, facing each other as equals…” – Dan West, founder Heifer International 
Make a difference…World hunger organization Heifer International’s community impact starts with giving one animal to one family, or “passing on the gift”. Like water drops generate ripples flowing outward from an impact point, the gift creates “concentric rings of influence” radiating through a village, allowing sustainable methods taught to the original family to be passed on to others as animal’s offspring are gifted. Our intent for their new Education Center, much like the headquarters completed three years ago, was to exemplify Heifer’s sustainable mission for educational purposes. Heifer could practice what it preaches.
