The Architectural Record article about MASS Design Group discusses their project, The Butaro Hospital in Rwanda for which the book published by MASS further highlights strategies to improve health and strengthen communities through design.

Laura Raskin writes, “Before 2007, people living in the rural Burera district of northern Rwanda had little access to a health-care facility or doctors. Then the nonprofit Partners in Health and the Rwandan Ministry of Health began creating a health-care network in the region, including the 150-bed Butaro Hospital, designed by Boston-based MASS Design Group. The hospital opened in January 2011 and quickly made an impact on the health of the nearly 350,000 people in the area.”
