ARCHIVE Global strives to improve the poor's living conditions and create healthier communities through innovative architectural /environmental design. Using one basic right – housing, to deliver one basic need - health.
Our mission is achieved through a threefold approach:
- Creating new knowledge on the impact of design in improving health and/or using existing research to inform novel approaches to the improvement of human health and living conditions.
- Influencing decision makers at all levels to ensure that sufficient regulation and support exists to protect people from the risks associated with sub-standard housing. Central to this is our desire to see housing as a key pillar of local, national and international public health strategies.
- Facilitating practical improvements to homes including renovation of existing housing, the provision of existing products and contributing to the design of new affordable products.
