The group formerly know as the Architecture for Humanity Chapter Network, has decided to find a new name for itself. Now that they have done significant work transitioning from a group of chapters to a collectively mobilized and collaboratively led network, they will surface a new banner to rally under, and they want your voice in creating this name.
The network’s existence proves that the most resilient aspect about the old AFH organization are the people. Inspired to deliver on the mission of needs based, participatory design these volunteers remain as steadfast as ever, maybe even more so, working to create more opportunities within the design and AEC professions for humanitarian work. Moving forward they will form a 501(3)c nonprofit in the US and operate to support the professional development of their members, and the incubation of new chapters as sustainable business models for humanitarian design practice.
This network belongs to anyone who believes in the power of design to have a massive impact on the way we build and are represented in this world. To capture the essence of how you want to see this new organization they are running a campaign to have people record their answers to key questions about our collective efforts.
