What's next for Architecture for Humanity?
Fast Company
News recently broke that Architecture for Humanity, the design nonprofit founded in 1999 by Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr to bring better architecture to those in need, had shuttered its San Francisco headquarters, and would be filing for bankruptcy. While the volunteers who ran Architecture for Humanity chapters knew that not all was right in the organization, many didn't find out about the fact that the global nonprofit they were volunteering for had shut its doors, potentially sidelining the projects they had been working on and jeopardizing funds they had raised, until it had been reported in the media — weeks after the full-time staff had been let go.

Autodesk has been testing the idea in its artist-residency program, Pier 9, in San Francisco. Inspired by the collaborative energy that’s a natural outcome of this veritable makers’ playroom, one of its 2014 residents, new media artist and researcher Reza Ali, used computational design and CNC milling to create a mind map exploring the potential of new digital fabrication technology in realizing organic forms.
