Architecture for Humanity is constantly keeping itself busy with dozens of ongoing projects around the globe. To keep the team up to date, we spent last week's Design Open Mic to review the progress we've made on some of those projects.

One very exciting update is that the Kimisagara Football for Hope Center in Kigali, Rwanda -- which has been in the works since 2007 -- has finally broken ground after the team over there had to overcome some road bumps along the way. Congratulations to all those working on the Football for Hope Program!

We also would like to direct your attention to the Tohoku Rebuilding Projects in the affected areas of Japan. Our on-the-ground Design Fellows, Autumn Ness and Yuji Tiara, have kept us updated on the latest progress, and their recent videos are worth checking out.

For more information on other Architecture for Humanity projects and to find out how to get involved, explore our Projects page, as well as the Open Architecture Network.

Stay tuned for more updates and presentations from our Design Open Mic series. And as always, come by on Wednesdays from 12-1 pm if you're in the Bay Area.
