Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. April, 2014)

Mr. Cameron Sinclair

Term:

Since Apr 1999

Profile:

Architecture for Humanity was co-founded by its Executive Director, Cameron Sinclair, who was trained as an architect at the University of Westminster and at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London. During his studies, Mr. Sinclair developed an interest in social, cultural and humanitarian design. His postgraduate thesis focused on providing shelter to New York's homeless population through sustainable, transitional housing. After completing his studies, he moved to New York where he has worked as a designer and project architect. Sinclair is a regular guest critic and lecturer at schools and colleges in the United States and abroad. He has spoken at a number of international business and design conferences on sustainable development and post disaster reconstruction, including guest appearances on BBC World Service, CNN International and National Public Radio. In 2003 Sinclair was named a Nice Moderist by Dwell Magazine. He is a recipient of the ASID Design for Humanity award and the Lewis Mumford Award for Peace. In 2004 Fortune Magazine named him as one of the Aspen Seven, seven people changing the world for the better. Most recently Sinclair was one of three winners of the 2006 TED Prize and nominated for the UK Designer of the Year.

Leadership Statement:

What began as a simple idea to provide design services to communities in need has transformed into an international non-profit building change in dozens of countries. Over the past decade Architecture for Humanity has become one of the world’s largest and most credible design organizations. Today, more than two million people are living, teaching, healing and playing in buildings designed by our design fellows, chapter members and volunteers. I am truly inspired by all the design professionals who come forward to dedicate their time and expertise where they are most urgently needed. Each project we undertake reaffirms my belief in the power of design to create a more sustainable future. In a time of great need, solutions are needed more urgently than ever. Two-thirds of the world lives in sub-standard living conditions without access to clean water or sanitation. This requires new thinking - local solutions that can be adapted and globally. As we enter into our second decade we are embarking on our first ever-capacity building campaign and intend to double both our budget and impact. This campaign will help us expand our network, develop stronger online tools, better support our chapters, respond quicker in times of great need and reach out to local builders around the world. Design is the ultimate renewable resource. Together, we can continue to build a better future.

Category:
Community Development
Population Served:
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

In 1999, we launched our first venture, an international competition to design five-year transitional housing for returning refugees in Kosovo. More than 300 architects and designers from 30 nations participated in the competition which resulted in five built prototypes. An exhibition of the finalists and selected designs was showcased internationally. Since then, Architecture for Humanity has developed a network of over 7,000 architects and designers and hosted a second competition to design a mobile HIV/AIDS health clinic for Africa. This second project led to over 532 entries from 51 countries and is currently being exhibited around the world. As a result operational clinics were built in Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania. In addition to implementing design initiatives and competitions, Architecture for Humanity also aims to promote humanitarian and social design through advocacy and education programs. Architecture for Humanity has consulted with government bodies and relief organizations on a number of projects, including mine clearance programs and playground building in the Balkans; post disaster reconstruction assistance in Grenada, India, Sri Lanka and the United States; and refugee housing on the borders of Afghanistan. Elementary and high school students have benefited from our design initiatives through after-school workshops, and at the university level, architecture and design programs around the world have used our competitions and design criteria as a model for semester-long projects.

Program Long-Term Success:

In 2007 Architecture for Humanity completed its 100th project - compared with just seven two years ago. More than 14,000 people directly benefited from built solutions and we provided professional design services on four continents, with over 250 volunteers, designers and architects.
