Global Activism: Chicago area architects offer their skills on projects around the globe

Previous Next

Each Thursday on Global Activism, we hear about an individual who’s decided to work to make the world a better place.

Katherine Darnstadt is the co-founder of the Chicago chapter of Architecture for Humanity. The charitable organization brings architects, designers, engineers and people in construction together to help provide architectural solutions to communities in need.  The Chicago chapter works on both local and international projects. Current projects range from building a mobile fresh fruit and produce store in Chicago to reconstruction of an earthquake-ravaged school in Haiti.
