Architecture for Humanity asks designers to donate time and resources in the wake of Hurricane Sandy

Following the destruction of Hurricane Sandy down the East Coast of the United States of America and across the Caribbean, many architects and charitable organisations have donated their time and resources to help bring communities back together in any way they can. Architecture for Humanity is an established non-profit organisation which addresses global problems through the medium of architecture and the team are sending out a call for action to encourage all of those in the profession who are willing and able to join them in supporting these devastated areas.

Architecture for Humanity has released a six-point reconstruction plan which reads as follows:

1. Enable additional support to our local chapters and expand technical services within existing institutions
2. Pro Bono design and construction assistance to non profits and community organisations in affected communities
3. Support property owners, with a focus on small and local businesses and rental properties in low-income communities
4. Provide professional architectural support to local agencies and community groups along the New Jersey shore to develop model mitigation strategies
5. Provide Architectural and Construction professionals to develop and build community facilities and anchors
6. Design, develop and implement civic structures and public spaces for existing partners and local communities. This includes the reconstruction and building of boardwalks, the economic lifelines of smaller coastal communities
