About Us

It is our mission to generate social, economic and environmental change by building resilience in people & communities. By working together with local communities and partners on co- creative projects and by assisting governments and the international community we develop new solutions justi ed by scienti c reason with the aim of improving vulnerable people’s livelihood.

We build resilience in people and communities.

We believe that Architecture is a Human Right. Every person has the right to have creative and safe developmental buildings and surroundings. We perceive architecture as a mediator that preserves and develops a community’s heritage and its unique ways of creating a sustainable living and co-existence.

As an embodiment for universal human rights, including the rights to education and housing, architecture gives dignity to communities as it forms a capacity to answer, influence and re-imagine one’s needs and life situation.

We believe in Architecture that works with and for local communities, with locally-sourced materials as well as advancing local construction methods and democratic processes as a means to building human rights and achieving the UN Sustainable Development goals for 2030.
