Architects Without Borders is a humanitarian organization that uses architecture and planning as tools to enable development.
We believe that decent living conditions are a fundamental human right that can be promoted by holistic thinking and by integrating technical, social, and aesthetic aspects in construction and planning.
That’s why we make architectural knowledge available to civil society and organizations that normally don’t have access to it. And we take responsibility for ensuring that construction develops in a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable direction.
In this way, we create opportunities for experience and skill development among architects in Denmark, so that solid competencies can be built for the benefit of our partners and for the part of the Danish architectural profession that is engaged in the global workplace.
Our organization consists of more than 300 members from different backgrounds. However, most being architects, gradually more professional groups are finding their way to, and are welcome within, the organization. You can join us a member here.
Architects Without Borders was founded in 2008 and is a member of the umbrella organization Architecture Sans Frontières International.
We are part of a global architectural network with “The Hasselt Charter” as our shared set of values.
Architects Without Borders is a Danish charitable, registered organization with CVR no. 31535840
