Through design-build programs, competitions, educational forums and partnerships with relief organisations, Architecture for Humanity supports major reconstruction efforts and humanitarian relief worldwide. For example, they assist communities following crises, such as the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Hurricane Katrina in New Crleans and the Southeast Asian tsunami, among other projects. Stohr and Sinclair were awarded the 2008 Copper-Hewitt Smithsonian National Design Patron Award and the 2009 Royal Society of Arts Bicentenary Medal for their work in promoting sustainable design and improving living conditions around the globe.

The best damned book #2 14 May 2012
By afterGLOW Design, LLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great second book that Architecture for Humanity has put out collecting and documenting a number of projects that focus on the other "99%" of the population that are not always catered to for architectural services. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in low income design or any other type of nontraditional practice. The articles are all written well and shown in a way to easily compare contrast. This is an amazing document/learning bible on socially responsible design. I highly recommend this book.
Gift for Architecture Student 4 Feb 2014
By Jessica Paulus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My brother in law in a grad student in an architecture program and is very focused on sustainable, environmental and ethical building practices. He already has the first edition of this book, but after reviewing it I found that the two have a lot of different information. I purchased this for him as a Christmas gift and he has already said how great it was! Definitely a worthwhile read for students, professionals or those just interested in the field!!!
Great size 30 Dec 2013
By hoffmalr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The print quality is terrific, and the size of the book is nice - not to unwieldy. The color photographs are a great addition and make the book more pleasant to read than other similar books about sustainable technologies for developing worlds.
In depth knowledge on out of the box design 30 Oct 2013
By KatAumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Design Like you Give a Damn is a great precursor to understanding grassroots efforts in the developing world. The look at various projects by Architecture for Humanity gives a fresh take on design. Where do we really design from? Our heads or our hearts?
I appreciate how the book gives a lot of examples in picture and short written form to be able to further research based on ones that catch your eye. I especially like the involvement of the community as the main stakeholder in these projects. The next book from this group gives even more example projects to feast your eyes and design inspirations on! Design Like You Give a Damn {2}: Building Change from the Ground Up
