Architect, headquarters volunteer and DLYGAD[2] featured designer Pouya Khazaeli recently sent us some images of design/build charrettes and workshops in Mashhad, Iran, and Grenoble, France, led by his team of Tehrani professionals and the guiding principles of Architecture for Humanity.

Consistent with his contribution to the latest Damn volume, Khazaeli pursues rapid emergency shelters for those with the very fewest resources...and is not satisfied with just one formulation.

Both charrettes explore reed an earth construction, built on flexible, small tree limbs and allowing for a bit of geometric poetry. In the case of the CRAterre event in Grenoble, the structure was devised for users of a...smaller scale. Take a look.

On June 21, we were thrilled to witness the largest opening ceremony to an Architecture for Humanity project. At around 3PM beneath a bustling bridge, thousands of young skateboarders poured into what's being praised as "the Best Skate Park in Manhattan," providing a revitalized space to an underserved community.

Construction has been going on since early May at the QwaQwa Football for Hope Centre site, and after a few delays due to deliveries of windows and doors coming late, the building is finally rising up and should be reaching roof level in a few days.

Design Fellow George Kinuthia is following up closely the site work. Hopefully construction should be finished in a couple of months.
