Design for a Cause

As we joined to participate in Unilab Foundation's Play it Forward program, we came in not knowing what to expect. After the Play It Forward Design Collaboration Workshop on August 3, 2013, it became clearer to us that this was going to be a very rewarding and important project.

As we joined to participate in Unilab Foundation's Play it Forward program, we came in not knowing what to expect. After the Play It Forward Design Collaboration Workshop on August 3, 2013, it became clearer to us that this was going to be a very rewarding and important project; we were going to be part of a program that helps children get better. The motivation was set and we were all prepared to begin this amazing process.


Planning the design of the play space was very enriching. It was our first time to create something that will not only remain as drawings and plans, but will actually be built. As a group, we bounced ideas around, planned a space that will be fitting for the selected hospital, and in the process, we grew as individual designers. Not only were we playing a part to help the program, but the program was helping us as well, honing our abilities and exposing us to the actual trade of the business.


Being a part of Play It Forward has been very fulfilling. It has been such a great experience to see how the creative process unfolds and brings about something that will be used, and hopefully, will be expanded in the years to come. We, and all the partners of Unilab Foundation, have not only done great service to the children in our selected hospitals, but we have also pioneered what could be a start to a greater purpose. I am very proud and exultant to be a part of Play It Forward, and I am looking forward to its success.
