Program Background
Architecture for Humanity loves looking at beautiful buildings, so we decided to preserve each of our own designs through the efforts of the Architecture for Humanity Model Making Program. Through the program, we produce replicas of each of our buildings; one to keep in-house as part of our rotating gallery archives, and one to be gifted to our clients. Having our project models on hand is an important part of the Architecture for Humanity tradition, and we find that being able to give our clients a miniature to travel, share with their community, and just show-off, is a pretty great feeling too.

We're looking for a dedicated model makers to work with our team to close out our model making program in November. These modelers will have experience with wood fabrication. Enthusiastic and highly independent workers with an interest in good design is ideal, and a passion for humanitarian design is a plus. No compensation is offered, although we try to make as many opportunity for volunteer appreciation as we can!
