Architecture for Humanity-Boston Chapter has been working with the non-profit Long Way Home (http://www.longwayhomeinc.org) for two years. Chapter member Ericka Temple, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP currently lives in Guatemala working with them full time on the design and construction of an environmental school using alternative construction. Long Way Home has been selected as one of the 12 finalists in the BBC World Challenge. This represents a huge opportunity for the Chapter, both in terms of the financial reward and exposure. The Challenge winner is determined by popular vote, so we are asking our extended Architecture for Humanity family to support the Boston Chapter by taking a minute to visit the site and vote for them.
Visit the site, watch a short clip about Long Way Home (the project is entitled "A Class Apart" on the site), and click on the VOTE NOW button. Additionally, a documentary will be aired on BBC World October 9th and 10th. Find out when it airs in your area.
