Architecture for Humanity is a 501(c)3 non-profit that addresses global humanitarian challenges at a local level by delivering vital, innovative, community-driven architectural construction and planning services to vulnerable populations worldwide.
Founded in 1999, Architecture for Humanity empowers and educates a global network of more than 55,000 building professionals to help communities improve their safety, health, and quality of life through the power of design. Architecture for Humanity’s building projects, advocacy and training efforts strengthen local resilience, support long-term reconstruction after a disaster, catalyzes the creation of educational spaces that promote learning, and centers that promote physical activity and support the overall well-being of a community.
Architecture for Humanity New York activates local, pro-bono creative professionals to deliver design and development solutions that respond to the needs of our community. Our volunteers work to build a more sustainable future across the five boroughs of New York.
