“Architecture for Humanity is a 501©(3) charitable organization founded in 1999 to promote architectural and design solutions to global, social and humanitarian crises. Through competitions, workshops, educational forums, partnerships with aid organizations and other activities, Architecture for Humanity creates opportunities for architects and designers from around the world to help communities in need. We believe that where resources and expertise are scarce, innovative, sustainable and collaborative design can make a difference.”
“The Auckland Architecture Association has been founded to provide a common meeting ground for architects, planners, teachers, students and graduates. The AAA is first a club, a convivial and congenial meeting place for members and their visitors. It aims to become a centre for the generation of architectural and planning activities, seminars, working groups and exhibitions. It is an opportunity for architects to be active in the life of the community, to lead in the formation of an intelligent public opinion about planning and building.”
The AAA has regular tours giving access to fine private homes around Auckland.
