Architecture without borders is a humanitarian organization that aim to improve the quality of life in the areas of education, housing and health through architecture.
To gain lasting effects we wish to focus on projects with a long term perspective helping to preserve and promote local history, culture and natural resources together with the local communities.
“ An important focus area for us is on long-term projects. It is in this way we believe that we can contribute the most with our professional knowledge.”
—alfonso Rengifo, founder
The worldwide network Architects Without Borders has started a new branch in Norway.
It aims to help communities with architecture and urban planning by playing an important role for vulnerable and marginalized communities of all kinds.
“Architecture Sans Frontieres International (asf) is an independent network of design for not profit organisations but concerned with social justice, the cultural and environmental aspects of architecture and the conservation of the human and physical heritage aspects of the built environment.”
