Today Architecture for Humanity co-founders joined designers, teachers and administration officials at a luncheon at the White House to honor the 2009 National Design Award winners and finalists. Our organization had received the Patron Award in 2008 but we had been notified after the 2008 White House event and invited this year to be recognized. The award is a great honor and we hope that it helps to push more socially responsible and collaborative design into the mainstream.
