About the Design Fellowship Program at Architecture for Humanity:
This program enables Architecture for Humanity to achieve its on-the-ground impact in communities around the world, expose emerging designers to challenging experiences in community-driven architecture, and ensures our organization as a whole remains on the cutting edge of community development and good design.
Design Fellows collaborate with communities to develop thoughtful, innovative design solutions to address urgent needs and see those rough sketches all the way through construction. They volunteer their time and Architecture for Humanity provides support and mentoring to ensure that the experience is positive both for the design fellow and the community they serve.
Turk Pipkin is a filmaker, author and actor and is the founder of The Nobelity Project, a global education nonprofit that works with Nobel laureates and other leaders to advocate basic rights for every child.
