We are a group of architects, designers, planners, fundraising and policy experts who are united by our enthusiasm for socially conscious design. We work with local and international non-profits, community organizations and government agencies to provide pro bono design and consulting services. We focus on providing local, inclusive, sustainable architectural solutions.

Announcement from Chapter Leadership :
Architecture for Humanity National has shut down as of January 1st, closing its doors as it prepares to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection. It was a board of directors decision to shut the organization down, and all the staff were laid off. We will wait and see if there are any legal ramifications that affect us but in the meantime, the sentiments of the local chapters is to carry on the work we’ve been doing for many years. AfHB has always operated semi-autonomously from AfH National since we are also a Committee of the Boston Society of Architects. The BSA acts as our fiscal sponsor which allows us to raise funds for our own projects.
The Boston chapter is currently working on projects in Boston, Somerville, Nepal, Haiti and Madagascar. We intend to continue our work without disruption to have a positive impact on the communities we work in. If you have a project that you would like a team to work with, or know a non-profit that needs design services, please contact us at email@example.com
