Statement from Architecture for Humanity Atlanta on the closing of Architecture for Humanity – January 2015
We are saddened to hear the news that Architecture for Humanity has closed it doors.
While we can’t imagine the impact this will have on the global humanitarian design community, we remain proud of the mission and dedication of the partners, board, staff and volunteers designing like they give a damn around the world and right here in Atlanta.
As we took time off from active project work in 2014 to restructure our local chapter, we held AFH Atlanta in our hearts and minds every day. Behind the scenes, conversations about new partnerships continued and calls for project assistance re-energized us. We remain committed to the AFH Atlanta mission and this is certainly not the end for us, or this important work. The power of community involvement in the design of the space we live, work and play is, and will always be, our driving force.
Thank you Architecture for Humanity, Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr for your vision. You have supported us in so many ways over the last 6 years, I’m not sure we’ll ever find the words to express our overflowing gratitude to you or the Atlanta community.
Peace and Blessings,
The AFH Atlanta Board
