Architecture for Humanity
Co-founded in 1999 by Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr, Architecture for Humanity connects those affected by humanitarian crises and natural disasters around the globe with an international network of architecture and construction professionals who supply pro bono design services to build housing, clinics, and schools. AFH currently works in twenty-six countries on projects ranging from health and community centers in Africa and Asia to houses on the United States Gulf Coast. In 2007, Sinclair and Stohr launched the Open Architecture Network, an online, open-source community that provides access to an archive of innovative and sustainable design plans. AFH was featured in Cooper-Hewitt’s Design for the Other 90% and 2006 National Design Triennial exhibitions.
