As we are setting up reconstruction offices in New York and New Jersey the creative community continues to help us raise funds for rebuilding affected communities along the eastern seaboard.

On Tuesday November 27th the Bowery Hotel will be transformed into a pop up sample event that will put the Barneys sale to shame. One hundred of the worlds top designers have donated their best threads. From discounted threads from Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Alabama Chanin to Theory and Edun will make up 100 racks. Proceeds will be split equally between Architecture for Humanity and Waves For Water.

Happy Thanksgiving! Can you believe it's been another year?

Last year alone, Architecture for Humanity provided places to live, work, learn and heal for 66,000 people in 27 countries. As a Community Builder, you were an important part of making that happen.

At Maeami-hama Community House, a ground-breaking ceremony was held on November 4th, and construction is now moving along smoothly.


Frequent construction updates on this project can be found on KMDW (the architect of record)'s facebook page (in Japanese only). We will also be providing summarized updates from these posts here, so stay tuned!
