Localize, Globally

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 Auckland Chapter

Architecture for Humanity Auckland combines the talents of multidisciplinary design professionals to aid their local community, as well as that of Christchurch (via an unofficial satellite chapter).

As part of their mission, they focus on education, instigation, and advocacy. They assist other organizations in seeing their architectural ambitions come to fruition, support local socially responsible and sustainable (architectural) projects, and work with schools and universities to host exhibitions and continue discussions concerning humanitarian issues.

They welcome any and all to join them in their work!

About "I Love Architecture"

"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.
