Tom De Blasis appeared at Texas A&M's Architecture Lecture Series Sept. 19, 2011 in Preston Geren Auditorium.
He teamed with Waves for Water, an organization that aims to maximize access to drinking water for all the world’s residents, to develop the Gamechanger Bucket, which addresses Haiti’s drinking water shortage as well as its love of soccer.
“As a profession we spend most of our energy and talent serving the needs of business or lusting after being the designer of the next Jordan or Kobe,” De Blasis recently told CounterKicks, a breaking news sneaker website. “I know that we can also serve the needs of the world at the same time by using our skills and the horsepower of global machines like Nike and other companies to different ends than just selling more stuff.”
