Kounkuey Design Initiative

 

Design Director


Location(s): Los Angeles
Contact Name: Keana Flores
Contact Email: keana@kounkuey.org
Contact Phone: 5622012714
Contact FAX:
Salary Range:
Web Site: kounkuey.org
Job Description:
Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI) is an international, non-profit, design and
community development firm, offering landscape architecture among its many
services. KDI uses design as a tool for social justice. Specifically, the
firm collaborates with under-resourced communities to advance equity and
activate the unrealized potential in neighborhoods and cities. This mission
is accomplished through advocacy, research, planning, and built works. Often,
KDI works with local residents, to transform unsafe and under-utilized
places, into “Productive Public Spaces”. From permanent parks, to
temporary vacant lot activations, each space integrates key amenities such as
community buildings, water and sanitation facilities, green infrastructure,
and open spaces for recreation and exercise. KDI executes all phases of the
design process.

KDI believes community-led planning is key to sustainable and equitable
change, so KDI also helps residents design and implement programming that
generates income, energizes culture, builds community capacity, and brings
the Productive Public Spaces to life for years to come. KDI designs
“with” each client, and not “for”. The firm has five departments:
design, planning, community, research, and operations.

KDI started when 6 students at Harvard University Graduate School of Design,
developed a two-week research project in Nairobi, Kenya. That project took on
a life of its own, and KDI was formed in 2010. With offices in Los Angeles,
Nairobi, and Stockholm, KDI continues to grow and further its mission, with
domestic and international projects. KDI has been recognized for its
innovative approach to poverty alleviation by notable institutions such as
The Rockefeller Foundation, UN-Habitat, The California Endowment, Ashoka
Changemakers, American Express, Annenberg Alchemy, Smithsonian Institute,
IDEO, Echoing Green, The Atlantic Renewal Project, and UN/Dubai and Swiss Re
Foundation.
