Boston – CannonDesign, a global architecture and engineering firm, celebrated the 30th anniversary of its Boston office with an Open House on Thursday, March 27th. Marking the milestone, the Boston office made a $10,000 donation to YouthBuild Boston. This donation will be used to cover student stipends for the summer session, allowing YouthBuild Boston to employ 15 students for 20 hours per week for eight weeks.

CannonDesign’s ideas-based practice is focused on providing client solutions to create healthy and nurturing places, make intelligent use of resources, and turn challenges into opportunities in order to design a successful future together with clients. Based on the belief that communities derive significant benefits from access to the design professions, the Boston office continues its public interest design work through CannonDesign’s Open Hand Studio™, which provides pro bono design services to those who would otherwise lack access.

YouthBuild Boston (YBB) was founded in 1990 with the goal of providing underserved young people with the support and credentials needed to successfully enter the trades. For more information, please visit http://youthbuildboston.org/.
