As early adopters of Design for Freedom, Pilot Project teams accelerate the movement by raising awareness of the pressing humanitarian issue of forced labor in the building materials supply chain.

Together, Grace Farms Foundation and these Pilot Projects are modeling transparent and forced labor free supply chains and demonstrating design principles in action by creating a tangible example of a more humane built environment.

Black Chapel is the 21st Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Chicago-based artist Theaster Gates. As Responsible Materials Advisor, Grace Farms
worked with AECOM and the Pavilion project team
to trace plywood and timber, steel, concrete, and
the weatherproofing membrane. There were more
than 16 suppliers and manufacturers in the supply
chain of the traced products.
