A little over a year ago I photographed a project for the local chapter of Architecture for Humanity – Boneshaker Books, a new progressive, non-profit, all volunteer bookstore. Working with an all volunteer staff, Boneshaker Books offers progressive literature, fiction, children’s books, a Saturday story time for children, progressive and neighborhood related events and bicycle delivery of books.
A charitable organization, Architecture for Humanity declares in it’s mission statement that it is, “Building a more sustainable future using the power of design. Through a global network of building professionals, Architecture for Humanity brings design, construction and development services to communities in need.” To learn more about their work you can go to their website – architectureforhumanity.org.
Working with partner organizations and also self contained, Architecture for Humanity has been active around the world including Pakistan, Haiti, India, Africa, New Orleans, Sri Lanka, Iran . . . the list goes on.
At Boneshaker Books, AFH offered design and lighting services. You can see more information and some of my photos at this post on the Worldchanging website – possibly one of the world’s largest sustainability websites, a clearinghouse for solutions-based journalism about sustainability and the global future.
To learn more about Architecture for Humanity you can also check out their latest newsletter from Spring of 2012.
I also took photos of The Family Place for Architecture for Humanity which I talked about in a past post – January 2011.
