Architecture for Humanity co-founders to step down
Very quickly, the idea was transformed into a nonprofit that today manages every facet of the building process, from ideation to implementation. The group pioneered the use of "open source" within the architecture profession and developed a results-driven, community-led design process.
In 15 years, AFH has responded to 15 natural and man-made disasters, completed over 300 projects in 47 countries, expanded to 63 chapters across the world, and has nurtured a network of more than 75,000 architects, professionals and volunteers committed to making a positive impact through architecture, according to the organization.
"Kate and Cameron's vision and years of dedication and hard work leaves the organization in a solid place to continue its leadership role in using architecture to solve humanitarian problems," said Matt Charney, AFH board president. "They have built a world-class team of staff and volunteers committed to improving communities --both around the globe and in the U.S."
Said Stohr: “It’s great to see something you started evolve into an institution."
