Architecture For Humanity, Biloxi Reconstruction, AFH Biloxi, Design Like You Give A Damn, Cameron Sinclair, Gulf Cost Reconstruction, Hurricane Katrina [1]

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re big fans of Architecture for Humanity [2] here at Inhabitat. And Monday-Thursday of next week, I’ll be venturing down to the Gulf Coast to see first-hand just what the humanitarian design organization has been up to as part of their hurricane reconstruction [3] efforts in Biloxi, Mississippi. AFH [2] has a variety of programs [4] in the works to help displaced citizens rebuild their homes, businesses, and communities through a collaboration with architects, designers, and other local entities who understand the intricacies of FEMA guidelines and the area’s new building requirements. Stay tuned for a full post-visit report on their progress. And if you’re interested in volunteering, visit AFH’s [5] website here [6].
