On April 6th 1999 I was in my early 20s working as a junior designer (cad monkey) for a large architecture firm in New York City. Dismayed at the lack of professionals engaged in emergency housing with Kate Stohr we co-founded Architecture for Humanity as a vehicle to engage architects and designers in responding humanitarian crises. We grew and co-led the organization until mid-2013. In the spring of 2015 the organization abruptly closed down and due to the nature of how the organization was ended there are very few records or online resources of any of the projects that were completed over 15 years. Below is a (non-complete) list of all the projects that the organization was involved with. This list does not include initiatives developed and run by local chapters, many of which continue to this day.
