Alan Ricks is the Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of MASS Design Group, an impact-driven architecture and design firm focused on community design for underserved populations around the world. The firm began with the design and construction of the critically acclaimed Butaro Hospital in Rwanda and has since expanded to 12 countries on three continents, focusing on design innovation and health infrastructure development.

MASS uses design to advance a more equitable world. Its projects span research, policy, education, and strategic planning that provide infrastructure, buildings, and the human and physical systems necessary for growth, dignity, and well-being. Among Mass Design’s major initiatives are the Center for Global Health in Uganda, medical centers for treatment of cholera and TB in Haiti, and the Africa Center for Peace in Rwanda.  Many of the studio’s projects result from research initiatives supported by the National Institute for Health in collaboration with faculty from the Harvard School of Public Health.
