Dear Fellow AFHers,
We regret the recent news that Architecture for Humanity Headquarters has closed. This came as a shock to all of us in the 55 chapters around the world. Over the last couple of days, AFH:SF has been communicating with our fellow international chapter leaders to strategize the best way to move forward. Amid the turmoil, one thing stands out...we are not going anywhere. There are too many talented minds and caring individuals to give up on what we have started.
Friends, Clients, & Design Humanitarians,
We want to thank you for your trust and constant support over the last 11+ years. It has been an incredible journey and we are proud to say that with you by our side, we have completed over 60 projects in New York City!
To Architecture for Humanity – Minneapolis / St Paul:
Dear Clients, Members, Volunteers and Allies,
We would like to let you know that the Architecture for Humanity Headquarters in San Francisco has announced that they have suspended all operations and are filing for bankruptcy. The press release is available at the main Architecture for Humanity website:
The "Healthy Hartford Hub" project was an ongoing collaboration of the New Haven Chapter of Architecture for Humanity and the Hartford Community Loan Fund (HCLF). In response to a 2012 report by The Reinvestment Fund and the Opportunity Finance Network that identified Hartford as a city with extremely limited supermarket access, the HCLF identified a downtown parcel of unused city-owned land as the ideal location for a new community center.
By now, you've probably heard the news: Architecture for Humanity has closed its doors permanently.
We at AfH DC were shocked and dismayed to hear this. The entire Chapter Network, which includes some 60 Chapters worldwide, is in discussion to determine what our next steps will be. What's clear so far is that this closure does NOT mean the end of the Chapters, including AfH DC.
Dear Toronto, Architecture Community, Design Humanitarians & Friends -
My apologies if you have already received this message. I just want to make sure we reach everyone.
The news is unfortunately true. Architecture for Humanity, Inc. has closed it's doors after 15+ years. And though this is a sad moment for all of us, we would like to shed some light on this situation and reassure our members.
Architecture for Humanity, is a 501c3 parent organization of all chapters worldwide, started by Cameron Sinclair's vision to "design like you give a damn".
We met today to judge the LifeCorps Food Share Hub Ideas Competition! Architecture for Humanity and LifeCorps would like to thank everyone that submitted a design. Our judges were Joe Lobko, partner at DTAH; Elsa Lam, Canadian Architect Editor; and Valerie Gow, principal at Gow Hastings Architects.
Congratulations to our first place winners:
Natalia Rodriguez Villalta
Eva Pérez García
Sergi Català Lloret
And to our runner-up:
ZhangJi & Bennet Marburger
The judges were impressed by all the wonderful ideas.
With the news that the national architecture for humanity organization has closed, our chapter has decided to also close until further notice. It has been a good four years and we accomplished many great things. It is truly the end of an era, but we will continue to be active with other organizations in Baltimore that provide pro-bono design, such as AIA and Neighborhood Design Center. We will always work to help spread the gospel of good design for all.
Thank you to our members, supporters, and friends. It's been a good run!
