In Sioux Falls, South Dakota the impact of the local chapter of Architecture for Humanity is peppered throughout the city.
An affordable housing competition not only challenges the local design professionals, but its results are directly benefiting Sioux Falls families. A garden shelter on a hospital campus serves as a resting place for weary gardeners, who have been flocking to the project. The chapter has numerous well-used built projects around the city, and has plans set in place even more. While the chapter recently suffered a relocation of three out of its four founding members, its aims are set no less high for becoming a municipal staple for design engagment.
Kristen Schulte and Steven Dix recently spoke with Headquarters about the chapter's story, their work, and their plans for growth. You can check out some of their work on the I Love Architecture page.
