Prasoon Kumar

by Dr Nirmal Kishnani

He is an architect, TEDx speaker and social justice campaigner who is working towards eradicating homelessness. He has worked in a commercial design firm in Los Angeles before moving to Singapore where, in 2013, he co-founded billionBricks, a non-profit organisation that innovates shelters and creates opportunities for the homeless to emerge from poverty. Its first innovation, weatherHYDE, is a life-saving emergency shelter that has rehabilitated over 4,000 people, and won the Singapore President’s Design Award. Its latest innovation, powerHYDE, is the world’s first self-financing solar home for the homeless and paves the way to realise billionBricks’ vision of a world where no one is homeless.
