Karen and I have loved being AfH MSP'a co-coordinators this past year, but it is now time to pass the torch. If anybody is interested becoming a co-coordinator, please feel free to contact one of us with any questions you may have or to announce that you're throwing your hat in the ring. This will be on May's agenda as well.
Erin & Karen:)
Dave Hampton, an architect from North Carolina with 15 years of professional experience, will discuss his work as a Design Fellow with Architecture for Humanity in Port-au-Prince assisting with the post-disaster recovery of Haiti. He will explain the damage caused by the earthquake and the response to repair and rebuild, illustrating his points with information on key projects and places in the recovery. He will be identifying lessons from redevelopment work in Haiti relevant for other developing nations (especially post-disaster) facing the effects of climate change.
It’s our anniversary! Join us to “Drink Like you Give a Damn” and celebrate our 5th year as a chapter in Atlanta. We’ll be at The Drafting Table to sample some of their EARLY SKETCHES and FIRST DRAFTS made with locally sourced ingredients and paired with their local and regional beer selection.
Are you interested in learning more about our organization, our projects and volunteer opportunities? Our monthly Chapter Meetings are for discussing current work and meeting prospective volunteers. These meetings are usually followed by informal conversation over drinks at a local pub. Both new and returning volunteers are welcome.

This two-day course July 12 - 13, 2013, Presented by Design Corps and SCAD Atlanta, will provide design and planning professionals with in-depth study on methods of how design can address the critical issues faced by communities. Training in public interest design is a way of enhancing an existing design practice and learning skills to become pro-actively engaged in community-based design. The curriculum is formed around the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) metric, a set of standards that outlines the process and principles of this growing approach to design.
On June 15th 2013, ECO City Farms will conduct a food access survey of residents who live at the 480-unit Autumn Woods Apartments in Bladensburg, Maryland. We are looking for groups and individuals to help us interview community members.
Please join Architecture for Humanity for a Wine Tasting and Food Pairing event to raise awareness and funds to support the pro-bono community design projects throughout the five boroughs of New York.
We will taste 4-5 different wines from small, family farmed estates paired with picnic favorites, just in time to start summer. The Moore Brothers has donated their time and expertise and as a result 95% of your ticket will be used for the New York chapter of Architecture for Humanity and 5% will be donated to the global organization.
