About Architecture for Humanity
Architecture for Humanity is a nonprofit design services firm, founded by Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr in 1999.
We are a global network of more than 40,000 professional architects and designers united by the desire to use our skills for the common good by bringing design, construction, and development services where they are most critically needed.
We connect communities to development resources and professional design services then work side-by-side to help them achieve sustainable prosperity through the power of design. From conception to completion, we manage all aspects of the design and construction process.
Our clients include community groups, aid organizations, housing developers, government agencies, corporate divisions, and foundations. Each year 10,000 people directly benefit from structures designed by Architecture for Humanity. Our advocacy, training and outreach programs impact an additional 50,000 people annually.
The planet's resources are limited. Sustainable prosperity requires the design of more efficient ways to protect and employ our finite resources. Fortunately, design is renewable resource.
