Architecture for Humanity & the AIA Partner to Prepare Architects for Disaster Response Leadership
The AIA and Architecture for Humanity announced a strategic partnership to coordinate advocacy, education, and training that helps architects make effective contributions to communities preparing for, responding to, and rebuilding after disaster.  The 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.
