Hundreds of homes and businesses have been destroyed by tornadoes this season in states ranging from Illinois to Texas, displacing citizens and causing severe economic damage to their communities.
Funds will go towards placing a committed architecture professional(s) to provide pro bono design services to the affected communities. We believe thoughtful, inclusive design creates lasting change in communities by bringing safe shelter to areas prone to disaster.
Architecture and design professionals are critical to establishing precedents for best-practices in reconstruction and development post-disasters. We are passionate about openly sharing knowledge and methodologies that can be replicated in responding to the inevitable next storm, producing a ripple effect. By supporting the long-term reconstruction of the businesses decimated by these tornadoes, we can accelerate the economic recovery of the local communities that depend on them.
