Humanitarian group in cash call
Architects are being asked to mark last Monday's World AIDS Day by helping to ease the growing humanitarian crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa.
New York-based charity Architecture for Humanity has called on the British architecture community to help fund its campaign to 'find design solutions to some of world's major problems'.
Founder and architect Cameron Sinclair says he wants the architecture community to provide cash for a proposed design charette planned to take place next year with South African doctors.
He also called for money to help fund the construction of the winning scheme in its OUTREACH competition, challenging architects to design a mobile HIV/AIDS clinic. Sinclair hopes that if all goes to plan, construction on Denmark-based KHRAS Architects' winning designs will be under way late next year.
