A new American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Architecture for Humanity partnership is focused on providing resources so more architects can utilize their skills in disaster response environments and better serve as leaders in their community.
Together, the organizations will coordinate advocacy, education, and training that helps architects make effective contributions to communities preparing for, responding to, and rebuilding after disaster.
Although both organizations have well-established volunteer-led disaster response programs, the increase in disasters over the past several years heightened the need for additional architects to be trained in disaster response techniques. The partnership combines and enhances existing disaster related resources and develop new programs and education targeted toward AIA members, allied professionals, and the general public.
