In the months following the closure of the San Francisco headquarters of Architecture for Humanity in January 2015 due to a financial shortfall, 34 chapters in the United States and around the world joined forces to develop a new framework to continue as a charity serving local communities through design. A campaign was launched in September this year to rebrand the AfH Global Network as a 'collectively defined, collaboratively run, and inclusive' non-profit. A video survey was sent out to members to get their views on how the new AfH should be structured and what they think are the core values and mission of the charity. The Chapter Network is working with brand strategists Skyrocket Digital to assess the survey responses and formulate a new name. So watch this space for updates.
Meanwhile, here in London we will continue as Architecture for Humanity, while we are proud to be part of the global movement.
