HUM:ARC – Finnish collective for humanitarian architecture

Me and Anssi Kankkunen became part of HUM:ARC, a Finnish collective for humanitarian architecture, in autumn 2010. The collective was founded already in 2008, and worked in its first years mostly through informing architects about humanitarian issues. In 2010, our  Sra Pou vocational school project in Cambodia got started along with two more Finnish humanitarian architecture projects. So, all of us young Finnish architects working in humanitarian design decided to get together under the umberella of HUM:ARC. HUM:ARC closely collaborates with Ukumbi ry., which is an older NGO working in the field of humanitarian architecture. HUM:ARC has its own blog under www.humarc.org – visit it for more detail!
