It takes a network to build healthy spaces where they are most needed.
This Spring we're showcasing the incredible portfolio of work designed and built by our international Chapter Network. Over fifty groups of designers and architects dedicate their time and talents after work to building places for neighbors in underserved areas.
Each week we will be featuring a different chapter, their work and the people making it happen. We invite you to support their efforts and the resources that make humanitarian design strategies accessible to more people and places globally.
The Atlanta Chapter
Architecture for Humanity Atlanta, an all volunteer group of interdisciplinary professionals, seeks to promote humanitarian design and demonstrate sustainable solutions to challenges within the built environment by adhering to three core objectives:
1. Engage the local community through educational outreach initiatives.
2. Lead volunteers in programs that advocate environmentally responsible stewardship as well as microeconomic development.
3. Resolve instances of disaster and poverty while assuaging socio-economic hardship and restoring human dignity.
"I Love Architecture" is an annual campaign celebrating the places that enrich lives and livelihoods; and supporting the practice of engaged, resilient and beautiful humanitarian design and construction in underserved neighborhoods around the world.
Solutions are best that commute least. Architecture for Humanity chapters bring our mission to in their cities and towns facing local, nuanced challenges in the built environment.
Through "I Love Architecture," awareness and support are raised at the chapter level. Half of funds raised go directly to spending at the chapter's discretion; and half goes to support chapter-wide resources and capacity building. "I Love Architecture" is growing the network through which humanitarian design and built solutions can reach more communities around the world.
