Michael Murphy is the executive director of MASS Design Group. He spearheads MASS’ research and design programs and has helped expand the firm into ten countries and three continents.
Murphy led the design and construction of MASS’s first project, the Butaro Hospital in Rwanda, which opened in 2011. The award-winning hospital established the MASS blueprint: immersive study of each location for its challenges and advantages, design of buildings that will improve the well-being of patients and communities, low-impact and environmentally sensitive construction that enriches the community, and evaluation of each design’s impact in improving lives. View Murphy’s inspirational TED Talk below.

On Saturday, October 8th from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, Feeding the Hudson Valley will be taking over the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park in collaboration with the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley’s “Walk to Fight Hunger.” Hundreds of members of the public will be provided a delicious free feast, sourced from fresh top-quality produce that would have been wasted.
The Hudson Valley Regional Council, Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, Dutchess Outreach, the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley Food Bank, and others will be promoting positive solutions to food waste right here in the Hudson Valley. While some benefit from the great bounty of fresh foods the Hudson Valley has to offer, there are many people in our region who suffer from food insecurity. This means they lack easy and regular access to quality food and may frequently go hungry. While 40 percent of food in the United States goes uneaten, 1 in 7 people struggles with hunger. Food waste in New York totals about 18% of what makes up our waste stream while across Dutchess, Orange, Putnam and Ulster counties 1 in 10 people receives Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and barely get enough to eat.
