LAND OF THE FREE , HOME OF THE BRAVE
Khang Nguyen + Nima Malek, 2013
Every year United States veterans return home with injury; in fact, roughly 26% of our veterans live with some kind of disability from the service they gave to our country. Many return home with loss of mobility (bullet wound, loss of limbs, etc) that drastically changes the way they interact with the world and sometimes even the loss of the very freedoms they defended. This is not what our veterans deserve and this is why the American Institute of Architecture Students and the American Galvanizers Association have teamed to help offer freedom back to veterans by presenting the Design Competition, asks students from around the globe to explore ways of ascending for those who must now continue to fight just to enter their home.
