Architecture for Humanity's chapters have been working hard on projects throughout the world - this year we'll be spotlighting active chapter projects, and the people behind them, in a regular update series.

This week we're featuring New Haven's ParkFEST furniture competition, Toronto's Swaziland Trade School extension, and Vancouver's Chinatown Laneway Recovery.

These projects have been highlighted to show the variety of topics that the Chapters tackle. Each one shows a dedication to community design and problem solving.
