The Integration of MLK and Design

Today, in the United States and throughout other parts of the globe, people will be celebrating the monumental strides taken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As a part of our observance here at M-squared and LOCZIdesign, I want to share a photo essay featuring some of my favorite interior, man-made, and outdoor design structures respectfully dedicated to MLK.

  1. I never thought about his influence on design specifically, but now that you have pointed it out, it’s so clear! Messages about what we collectively value are revealed in the design of public space. MLK advocated for equal access to public space for all. Thank you for sharing!
