Co-founded in 1999 by Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr, Architecture for Humanity uses design to build sustainable futures. Embracing the motto “Design Like You Give a Damn,” AFH connects those affected by global, social, and humanitarian crises with a vast, international network of more than 4,000 architecture and construction professionals who provide pro bono design services to communities around the world and build essential structures such as housing, clinics, and schools. AFH currently works in 26 countries on projects ranging from health centers in sub-Saharan Africa and community centers in Southeast Asia to low-income housing on the Gulf Coast of the United States. In 2007, Sinclair and Stohr launched the Open Architecture Network, a collaborative, online, open-source community dedicated to improving living conditions through access to an archive of innovative and sustainable design plans. AFH was featured in Cooper-Hewitt’s 2006 National Design Triennial and Design for the Other 90% exhibitions.
