Every two years Architecture for Humanity changes the design world to tackle a global project. In 2005 we looked at health care delivery in Sub-Saharan Africa. In 2007 looked to develop digital inclusion facilities in developing nations, leading to the building of the SIDAREC community resource center in Nairobi. In 2009 we invited architects around the world to design the classroom of the future in partnership with students and teachers. Schools are currently being developed and built in Haiti, Uganda and the United States. In 2011, given that the most sustainable building is already built, we will look at re-purposing decommissioned military facilities. This includes one of the most high profile facilities in the world. In this talk we will present this program, its' aims and objectives as well as other open source architectural programs from Architecture for Humanity.
