Architecture for Humanity is a nonprofit design services firm founded in 1999 by Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr. Headquartered in San Francisco, the national organization administers international projects by “tapping network of more than 40,000 professionals.” A key component of this group is the local chapter network representing 60 chapters in 25 countries with more than 4,650 volunteer design professionals. Here in Atlanta, we are building on the original philosophy by engaging an all volunteer group of interdisciplinary professionals.
