"This is the real news of our century. It is highly feasible to take care of all of humanity

at a higher standard of living than anybody has ever experienced or dreamt of.

To do so without having anybody profit at the expense of another

so that everybody can enjoy the whole earth. And it can all be done by 1985."

–R. Buckminster Fuller, The World Game, 1971     

Imagine if Buckminster Fuller had access to the Open Architecture Network.

When Architecture for Humanity began we spent much of our time explaining the importance of design to community development partners and others. Today, thanks to the generous contributions of donors like you, we have a new tool for improving living conditions around the world—the Open Architecture Network.

The projects on the Open Architecture Network show what can be accomplished when architects and designers reach out to rebuild communities. But we can't do it without your support. Please help us continue to make this tool freely available to architects and others by making a donation today. Your contribution will help us to fix bugs, add new tools and maintain the site.
