Jeffrey Swainhart & Alissa Kingsly - AFH:MN
Founded by seven individuals with varying design backgrounds and driven by shared passion and dedication, the Minnesota Chapter of Architecture for Humanity exists to promote architectural and design solutions to global, social and humanitarian crises. They have found that when compassionate designers come together to promote humanitarian design, good things will happen. They have worked on projects as far away as Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka, and as close to home as North Minneapolis. Their mission: find great projects, unearth ways to raise money to make them a reality, and always "design like you give a damn."
